Sonia Cillari

Sonia Cillari talks about Sensitive to Pleasure, a performative electric-field sensing and sound environment that emphasizes the controversial relationship with her own work in front of the public over time.

Sonia is an italian media artist and architect, living and working in Amsterdam. Her work involves the creation of sensorial and perceptual mechanisms in immersive and augmented environments. Her artistic investigation examines how patterns of consciousness, perception and identity emerge in such settings. Over the last years she has been specifically interested in a field of research concerning the ‘Body as Interface’.

She has been artist in residence at Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Netherlands Media Art Institute/NIMK, STEIM: Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music, M4gastatelier (Amsterdam, NL), V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media (Rotterdam, NL), [ars]numerica (Montbeliard, FR) and Claudio Buziol Foundation (Venice, IT). Her interactive installations, which are at the intersection of architecture and performance art, have been exhibited and presented internationally.
