About

I am an interdisciplinary artist, media scholar and curator based in Toronto. I co-founded the ArtSci Salon at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences and I co-organize the LASER Toronto. My recent research creation project investigates emerging life forms exceeding the categories defined by traditional methods of classification. The installation Emergent is a postpandemic mobile gallery featuring encounters at the intersection of art and science with new, fabricated, and adapting life. My artistic work is deeply collaborative and has travelled internationally to galleries (Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice) art festivals (Transmediale, Berlin; Hemispheric Institute Encuentro; Sao Paolo), community centres (Immigrant Movement International, Queens NY, Myseum of Toronto), and science institutions (RPI; the Fields Institute). My writing has appeared on Antennae, Space and Culture, Cultural Studies and The Canadian Journal of Communication among others. Currently, I am a Scholar in Residence at Sensorium, Centre for Digital Arts and Technology (York University), and Coordinator of the NEWONE, Learning without Borders, an interdisciplinary program at New College‚Äôs University of Toronto.
