Anthropology of the Contemporary

Non hi-tech digital project of 'reading' environment

Urban Island >

Applied artist and linquist, also a new genre artist interested in exploring visual rhetorics and the intersections of art, activism and new technology. Since 2000 working primarily in digital media for the internet. Her work has been shown internationally in online and offline venues such as Stoke Newington Art Festival, Art Addiction 1st Medial Biennial, Absolute, Artmajeur, D'Art etc.

"The conditions and means of artistic creation have changed drasticly through development of technology, usage of numerouse tech- tools and with the transition to new virtual territory.

Humans became chief designers of the environment and life on the whole. Environment today and in the future is about designing versus chaotic / natural growth. "Letting go" of design might be one of the hardest and most unnatural things to do, yet can perhaps elicit rewards far greater than humans can produce.

New art genres are formed in the digital sphera; to fine 2D arts, digital art actictivism, webart
interventions, new visual arts and variouse projects with combined new medium technigues.

However, the new media also has its limitations; such as modality of creating by tool tech- grade or availability, fear of virtual non freedom ( profiling, closed environments, controlling, subjection, discrimination…). New media artist become not just visual designers but social activists as well. That is what I and other digital artist do, in real or virtual world."
