SILVIA RIGON’s  explores the continuous negotiation between singularity and constrains structuring physical and experiential worlds.

Her artistic practice includes multimedia installations, experimental animation, and iterations of drawings, 3D models, 3D prints and other fabrication processes.  Her aesthetic inquiries layer traditional and modern techniques, inviting the viewers to explore our ambivalence of towards the ideas of nature within the framework of the posthuman condition.

Her Recent body of work explores my interest in the continuous negotiation between singularity and the constraints structuring the physical, digital and experiential worlds. It looks at mathematical biology and growth algorithms to create a spatial condition in which practices of representation and practices of simulation intertwine. It employs media nomadism as a way to explore transformation and loops in the techno-natural continuum.

Her work has been exhibited internationally in such venues as: The Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Tokyo, Japan; The Center for Contemporary Art, Tallin, Estonia; Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria; The Armory Center for the Arts Pasadena; The Parachute Factory (Yale University), New Haven; The Center of Contemporary Art in Torun, Poland; The California Institute of Nanotechnology, Los Angeles; The Pacific Design Center, Los Angeles. Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria;

She holds a degree in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice (Italy), and a MFA from the Department of Design | Media Arts at UCLA (2002). She is a faculty at Pasadena City College in the department of Visual Arts and Media Studies. Previously, she worked at the Walt Disney Company and taught at RISD and UCLA.
