Ralo Mayer´s work delineates "ecologies of contemporary history" linking past futures and present-day speculations. Based on extensive research, he interweaves objects from space exploration, ecology, or the Science Fiction of everyday life into multilayered narratives and translates these into cross-media ensembles between installation, film, text, or performance. His work has been presented at international exhibitions, festivals, and conferences, and won several awards, for instance the Otto Mauer award for Contemporary Art in 2012. For his artistic research PhD project, Mayer currently investigates "Space Un·Settlements".
