Computational Artist & PhD Researcher
Teodora Sinziana is a computational and new media artist exploring practices of worlding, virtual poetics and the alternative imaginaries made possible by emerging and immersive technologies, with a particular focus on the potential of software for generating new modes of being, sensing and feeling. She is currently exploring these themes throughout her PhD at the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image, which aims to examine the emergence of cross-dimensional practices of worlding, concerned with the production of hybrid, mixed reality environments which allow for the experience of alternative spaces and timescales.
Teodora previously graduated with a distinction in MFA Computational Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London, where her work explored computational fictioning, co-creating with machines, physical computing and generative literature, with a focus on code-driven fictions and speculative storytelling within computationally augmented arts. Alongside her artistic and research practice, Teodora is Associate Lecturer in Creative Computing at Plymouth University, focusing on the use of human-computer interaction technologies for artistic expression, as well as Associate Lecturer in Contextual and Theoretical Studies of Moving Image and Digital Art at the London College of Communication, UAL. She has also taught at Goldsmiths in a number of subjects relating to creative technologies and computational arts theory.
Her work was featured in exhibitions in the UK, Australia, Germany and Romania; she has spoken about her practice and research at a number of events, most recently at the Human Computer Interaction Workshop at Somerset House, transmediale festival of digital art & culture, RIXC Festival and the Digital Ecologies II Symposium.
