    Clarissa Ribeiro, Ph.D. in Arts, Former Fulbright Scholar in Arts, M.Arch, B.Arch, chair of the first Leonardo ISAST LASER talks to be organized in Brazil, directs the CrossLab research group and art collective and the LIP Lab for Innovation and Prototyping at the University of Fortaleza, Brazil. She was an Associate Professor forRoy Ascott Studio B.A. in Technoetic Arts in Shanghai in 2015, after one year (2013-2014) collaborating with the Art|Sci Center and Lab at UCLA in Los Angeles as a Fulbright Post-Doctoral Research Scholar in Arts. From 2009/2010 she was a Ph.D. researcher at the CAiiA node of the Planetary Collegium, University of Plymouth, UK, by the time she was a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Sao Paulo, and a member of Gilbertto Prado’s art collective Poéticas Digitais. Her artistic and research interests converges in the exploration of consciousness and the self as emergences from local and nonlocal communication phenomena in macro, micro, molecular and subatomic scales.

    Clarissa Ribeiro, CrossLAB director, 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.

    Clarissa Ribeiro, Ph.D., is a media artist and researcher. She is currently the main Associate Professor of Roy Ascott Studio in Shanghai, China. Recently, she was awarded a Fulbright grant in Arts, and was living in Los Angeles, California, as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar, connected to the UCLA Art| Sci Center and Lab, collaborating with artists and scientists that are running cutting edge projects in their areas. During her Ph.D. in Visual Arts by the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, by the time she was together with the Gilbertto Prado’s group, she was a visiting research member of the CAiiA-Hub of the Planetary Collegium, UK. As an independent artist, she has been producing and exhibiting a series of experimental interactive installations exploring complex affectiveness through macro scale metaphorical translations of the non-local phenomenon of quantum entanglement. At present, regardless of living in Shanghai, she is still ‘non-locally’ collaborating with the Art|Sci Collective.
