ABOUT

statement

My intention as an artist is to provoke to both myself and the others a critical reflection upon contemporary culture and art itself. I hope my works wake up the curator that lives inside ourselves.

Gisela Nunes is a media artist with a background in design and multimedia studies, now focused in interactive new media art.

Her practice explores the object, the device and audience participation to present live experiences. While project themes may be various, real time processing, augmented reality and synthesized sound and images make up the backdrop to her work.

In recent years she exhibited at venues as Art & Science 2016 European Digital Art and Science Network (Serbia), Ars Electronica Festival 2015 (Austria), Yicca 2014 Winners Exhibition (Switzerland) and 2012 Guimarães European Capital of Culture (Portugal)
