Danielle Roney
Since 2009
Works in Atlanta, Georgia United States of America

Danielle Roney is an artist working with the hybridization of global identity structures relational to virtual and physical mobility. Working with digital media, immersive environments and interactive media architecture, the artist examines these new spatial relationships through time-base space and non-linear cinematic constructs.

Her project, Global Portals, presented concepts in transnational, networked public spaces at TEDGlobal 2005 in Oxford, England; with subsequent live interactions from Johannesburg, South Africa to Atlanta 2007. Her work has been exhibited extensively including the Beijing Off-Biennale, Convergence 2005; the SouthxEast Biennale 2008; Museum of Contemporary Art, Georgia 2008, 2011; the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago 2009 and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center 2006, 2010. Her recent project, Opposing Views, was presented by the International Symposium of Electronic Arts Istanbul 2011, in conjunction with the Istanbul 12th Biennale and explored the visualization of conflict through biofeedback sensors and the interactive media fa├žade of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb.

Roney provides consultation in public art master planning and is currently on the design team for the Atlanta BeltLine with architects, Perkins + Will and landscape architects, Field Operations. She is the media advisory for the John Weiland Contemporary Art Collection and was the exhibition and media designer for the U.S. Pavilion, Venice Biennale of Architecture 2010.

Her work has been reviewed in Art in America and Art Papers Magazine, recognized in Art and Auction and Contemporary Magazine, London and is featured in the recent publication, Noplaceness: Art in a Post-Urban Landscape. She has received numerous grants including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Georgia, Sony Electronics and the National Endowment of the Arts and awards from the Loridans Foundation. She studied sculpture and digital media at the University of Georgia and has held studios in Los Angeles and Beijing. Roney and collaborator Jeff Conefry are currently working with transnational spatial narratives and the migrant human condition through interactive architectural facades. She is also a researcher of Salmon Rushdie's "digital borne archive" at the Manuscript, Archives and Rare Books Library at Emory University.
