with Kimatica Studio
– Artist Talk
Maria Almena is a Spanish London-based creative director and a multimedia artist, co-founder of the creative studio, Kimatica Studio, and art curator of Flux events. Maria's practice research is exploring concepts of human consciousness and perception, making those transcendental ideas accessible to a modern audience, to inspire a reconnection with magical thinking. She is fascinated by the juxtaposition of the physical and spiritual, the virtual and real worlds, playing with perceptions aiming to transport the viewer into new worlds, using experimental technologies that help to dramatize the transition between different states of being and highlighting the importance of the journey in itself.
