Vanessa Lorenzo Toquero
Creative / Artist African Digital Art
As an artist Vanessa creates hybrid media ecologies embedding nature and the technologies that intertwine them. Trained as an industrial design engineer, she critically engages with technology to enable odd sympathies among species and foster post-anthropocentric futures. Vanessa has exhibited internationally, participating in symposiums, conferences and developing workshops that focus on the radical poetry of the more-than-human. She nourishes (from) and believes (in) communities of hackers/artists working in alternative spaces to have the power to subvert the dominating role of traditional science and technology.
