ABOUT PALOMA KOP
I am an electronic media artist. My work combines experimental hardware techniques and electronic signals with computer programming, digital image processing, and web-based media. I am especially interested in feedback loops and other phenomena that can result in self-propagation and evolution through iterative processes. Layers of abstract audio and visual material form serene spatial environments that manifest in single and multi channel compositions, durational performances, and installations.
I was born in 1991 in New York, NY. I received my BFA in Visual Arts and Computer Science from Purchase College in 2014, and I am currently working on my MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts at Alfred University (expected 2020). I have shown work internationally at venues such as Spectacle Theater (Brooklyn), Monk Space (Los Angeles), VIVO Media Arts Centre (Vancouver), Arebyte Gallery (London), and Kirchner Cultural Centre (Argentina), and events such as Ibrida*Pluri Festival (Montreal), Synesthesia Festival (Portland), and Flat Earth Film Festival (Iceland).
I sometimes produce small editions of physical media (such as prints, art books, and cassettes). I also often engage in collaborative projects and events.
I am a member of the Bureau of Fugitive Dream Recovery and an organizer of Télépresence. I co-created the web forum scanlines.xyz.
Commercially, I work in software and video technology for ViacomCBS.
