As a management consultant and experience designer, she focuses primarily on actors in urban space who are in search of relevance and resonance, for whom she conceives, curates and moderates.

Color by Numbers? The number as a muse … not only in digitization
Percentages, KPIs, deadlines – No question, numbers increasingly determine our life today, whether as numerus clausus, as date, salary or age limit, in the CO₂ footprint or in salary motivation, the pedometer or the calorie deficit. Especially in digitalization. Here, predictability is the silver bullet. Instead of eating water and bread, their actors feed on data, facts and their relationships to each other.
But where does the authority, the charisma, the magic of numbers come from? Why are we so willing to place our trust in them? And: What function does the number have within creative work? How much does it influence us?
From different perspectives as a scientist, entrepreneur, diabetic and artist, Anne Seubert poses the question of the influence, relevance and resonance of numbers – always in search of a possible alternative to quantified reality.
