INTERchange is an ongoing series focusing on artists working at the intersection of physical and virtual spaces. Through artist talks, discussions, and media we explore how new technologies inform and extend creative practice. We live in a world increasingly stratified by virtual layers of social, political, and economic culture. INTERchange hopes to understand how virtual and physical spaces are synthesized into new cultural forms.
Nitzan Bartov is a game designer and architect based in Brooklyn. Her talk at Brooklyn Research will introduce her work as it relates to architecture, simulation, and digital errors as means of escaping instantiated reality.
In VR, interactive and spatial media, her work mixes pop culture and sci-fi with computational design and sculptural elements, exploring representations of time and beauty in the flaws of the digital world.
Her works were presented at TriBeCa, SXSW and Sundance Film Festivals, Art && Code, Grey Area Festival, The Current Museum, and were covered by Wired, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Haaretz, BBC, The Verge, Vice and others.
Bartov is a Brooklyn Research member, a Media Lab Fellow at The Economist, and an Advisor at the School of Visual Arts. She studied architecture at Tel Aviv University, taught at Pratt Institute, and the Kill Screen Scholars Program.
