NGO Stories & Art Projects

For my work on art research, you can have a look on AFFECTIVE WALL, a multitouch intermedia instrument for realtime music and digital paintings created by the performer’s body-language through an innovative emotional analysis of movement and connection to sounds, rhythms, colors and shapes (a 19 out of 20 master thesis on Affective Computing in IST Tecnico Lisbon – research available here). A summary can be found in Another Thrill in the Wall, an Affective Eco-System Interface for Gestural Expressivity for the ACE 2011 – International Conference on Advances in Computer Entertainment Technology.
 
Also A NEW KIND OF NATURE? as a prototype of Permaflux, a conceptual and socially-engaged art practice, a research paper for the official catalog of Cheongju Craft Biennale 2021 in South Korea (bronze award in the Craft City Lab competition) and 2nd chapter of a long-term project on the use of upcycled waste materials for environmental awareness art installations (1st chapter exhibited in Cambodia in the Microgalleries’ Disrupting Climate Disruption: a Global Day of Action).
 
Other past recognitions: awarded an art residency in Bamboo Curtain Studio, Creative Talents Program (Taiwan, 2020 – cancelled due to Covid-19) and Special Jury Selection for the online global collective exhibition ‘Points of Return’ curated by A La Luz (2022).
