Joana Burd (b.1991), is a Brazilian and Lithuanian artist, educator and researcher. Graduated in Visual Arts in 2014 (UFRGS, Brazil) and Master in Visual Poetics in 2018 (UFRGS, Brazil), She is currently doing her PhD research at Facultat de Belles Arts, Universitat de Barcelona.

My work develops within art, physics and technology through interactive sculptures, videos and sound installations, collaborating with artists, performers and engineers. I focus my practice in a hybrid of low technology assemblies and open source coding platforms. The pieces aim to offer tactile experiences for the public to interact and engage their bodies with the vibration phenomenal. I research how motors and speakers can question objects of desire and the gender perspective in the digital field. I’m also interested in the affective impact of technology and how to create new forms of dialog through touch and haptic devices.
