    Rui Filipe Antunes was born in Mozambique and lives and works in London, UK. With an academic background in Computing and Fine arts he is currently a PhD candidate in Arts and Computational Technologies at the Goldsmiths College, University of London, where he investigates the artistic use of virtual ecosystems in virtual worlds. His artistic work draws on the escapist relationship of contemporary society with technology, and has a special interest in the debate on virtual life/art. In the latest works a particular attention has been devoted to the construction of memory mediated by technology. His work has been awarded twice in the VIDA competition of art and artificial intelligence (12th and 13th edition) and features in a number of publications such as Preble’s Artforms or the Journal of Virtual Worlds. A large number of curatorial projects and shows have included his work in the last ten years, including in 2010: Post Human/Future Tense, at the Arcade Gallery, in Chicago; FILE 2010 – Media Arte, São Paulo, Brasil; or  {S0NiK} Fest and Synthetic Zero Event, BronxArtSpace, NY.
