Since January 2003, he is an independent researcher (Principal Investigator) at the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine in Naples, Italy.
Lazerwitz' art explores the way technology shapes how our language is developing. Her art is carefully hand typed using enigma and code into the form of her beautiful wall tapestries, which also tells us a story.
