Eglė Ruibytė

Eglė Ruibytė is a visual artist and graphic designer who, while combining these two disciplines, is longing for meaning in particularly standardised global processes. She graduated in Graphic Art from the Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts and in Typography, that eventually turned into Sculpture, from the Hamburg University of Fine Arts (HFBK Hamburg). Delving into the technologies of industrial labour and searching for functional metaphors, she constructs mass-produced-looking objects partly by means of manual work. In this way, she leaves deliberate space for errors that speak of humanness within the limits of an industrial machine.
