    Dr. Clarissa Ribeiro, UCLA Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Los Angeles, California, USA.  Architect, Media Artist, and Researcher, teaching experimental design strategies in Architecture for first and final year students in Brazil, where I’m the director of the CrossLab research group and the LIP – Lab for Innovation and Prototyping at the University of Fortaleza. As an independent artist, I’ve been producing and exhibiting experimental interactive installations exploring affectiveness and consciousness through metaphorical translations of micro, molecular and subatomic scale phenomena, working in collaboration with other artists, research groups and art collectives in my home country and abroad. My artistic practice is viscerally linked to my research interests that for the last 20 years have been focused in investigating and understanding the influences, connections and cross contaminations between the sciences of complexity – cybernetics, information theory, systems theory, quantum mechanics – and artistic expressions and poetics in media arts and sciences.
