Energy is what fuels the work of this artist, holder of a master’s degree in the fine arts from Goldsmiths College of London—with the support of Capes/Apartes and Virtuose scholarships from
the Ministry of Culture—, a postgraduation in photography from Centro di Ricerca della Fotografia in Pordenone, Italy, and a degree in history from the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP). “Thinking about the second Law of Thermodynamics is important to my work because I am interested in the transformation of energy; the minimum energy it takes for a crystal to grow or the high charge it takes to detonate a smoke bomb,” she says. A lecturer at the Istituto Europeo di Design in São Paulo, the artist’s research articulates input from various fields of scientific knowledge, such as chemistry, geology, and cartography. Among the exhibitions she has accumulated over the course of her career are Video Links, at the Tate Modern (London, 2007), and her shows at the Centro Cultural São Paulo and Paço das Artes (São Paulo, 2007). In 2009, she will hold a solo exhibition at the CPU:798 Gallery in Beijing and proceed with a research project at Loughborough University, England. Her recent works include the exhibited research project Crescimento urbano e processo de crescimento de cristal (Urban growth and crystal processes, 2009), developed at the Tokyo Wonder Site, Japan.
