The foundation of Merle's interest is a deep urge to understand the nature of ourselves and our role in this world, how we interact with other species, plants, micro-organisms in our gut, etc. Merle Bergers sees her role as a designer to pivot the way we deal with the relationships with other 'invisible' realms, in science and nature. She tries to get to know these worlds thoroughly with the help of scientists and other professionals and then explain my findings via the use of (interactive) design.
After living and working abroad as a model in Paris, London, Tokyo and Milan I felt the urge to make the choice to rekindle my own ambitions. I got admitted at Design Academy Eindhoven and studied in the department of man & food, a department specializing in a kind of autonomous conceptual and holistic design. I love to make work that evokes empathy or connects people to each other, other species, micro-organisms or plants alike.
