DELFINA SOL

Lover of the overlap of art, science and tech. I am an evolutionary biologist by training, an artist by calling and an intersectional humanist by duty. I work on the production of art, research, and installations that play with what it means to be human. My work questions assumed binaries, such as male/female, white/colored, private/public, and nature/culture.

I am passionate about creative narratives, cohesive aesthetics and digital education. I see screens as a skin of modern culture. I like to combine my love for digital communication with my passion for the material world, so if I am not working on a virtual environment, you can find me painting, furniture making, or traveling.

I am currently a Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering (DISI) at the Università di Bologna, combining cognitive research, semantic technologies and computer vision to research the automatic modeling and detection of abstract social concepts evoked by visual art.
