Nicole L'Huillier

Artist-in-residence June- July 2019 

Transdisciplinary artist from Santiago (CL). Currently based in Boston (US), as a PhD candidate and research assistant at MIT Media Lab, Opera of the Future group, where she also earned a Master in Media Arts & Sciences (2017). Through installations, performances, sculptures, compositions, and multiple transductions, her work explores human and non-human performativity, rituals of membranal and resonant architectures, as well as vibration and sound as construction materials for spaces, identity, and agency. She works at the intersection of music, art, architecture, science, and technology to challenge perceptual conventions and to open the possibility of new imaginaries. Nicole is also part of the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative, where she explores the experimental forms and implications of art, expression and culture in outer space. She is also an experimental musician, drummer, synth lover and one-half of the space pop duo Breaking Forms.
