Joaquina Salgado is a new media artist from La Plata, Argentina. Her work combines emerging technologies, abstract and otherworldly images, XR experiences, interactive virtual worlds, and audiovisual performances. Through her explorations between the physical world and the dream world, which converge in the creation of synthetic environments with Real-Time technologies, digital sculpting and photogrammetry, her work reflects on internal programming and the relationship we generate with machines as interactive mirror.
Her multimedia studies at the Universidad de Artes de La Plata led her to present her work in various exhibition contexts such as digital art festivals, nightclubs, physical galleries and the metaverse. She has exhibited at festivals like MUTEK and Mirage, and collaborated on projects with Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF). She is part of Amplify DAI, an international network of artists and curators in the digital arts.
Her audiovisual installation Hidrontes, in collaboration with Argentine sound artist QOA, is currently exhibited at Fundacion Andreani.
In this edition of Mutek AR, Joaquina Salgado will present her latest work together with QOA at the Buenos Aires Planetarium.
