About IOTA

IOTA is a creative agency that supports writing, curatorial research, and cross-disciplinary artworks in new media, the web, visual, interactive and performance art.

We aim to reach beyond the scope and duration of traditional art exhibitions, to create an environment that fosters research opportunities, multi-sector partnerships including technology, biology, and grass roots movements.

IOTA was inaugurated in 2015 as a Pop Up Gallery that grew into a flexible research-based art collective model, prioritizing relationships between arts professionals, for non-hierarchical art curation, facilitation and creation.

IOTA has worked with contemporary artists, curators, writers, has built partnerships with international art organizations, commissioned new web-artworks, and has conducted art interviews for e-publication.

Her research explores themes on synesthesia, nonsense, the sublime and stupidity, with research currently underway in the field of Bio Art.
