    Samira Benini Allaouat is an interdisciplinary artist fascinated by ancient technologies and knowledge presenting new contemporary applications. She is also interested in the DIY and maker philosophy, in questioning stereotypes, behaviors and assumed social systems, in exploring new ways of deforming and combining elements, in researching and testing simple low-tech solutions to build a more resilient.

    With 25 years of experience in radical street art and moving image design, his favorite medium is the city. The spectrum of her artistic practice is very broad and at an international level she has worked on performances, exhibitions, editorial projects and events under different pseudonyms and also anonymously.

    Samira Benini delves into the paradigm shift, conveying broader aspects of the sustainability of human life and bringing a new ethical approach to art and design. Electricity in nature and automation are fundamental and recurring ideas in her artistic research. As in the work “No Plug Sound Machine”, where she wondered how to make electronic music without conventional electricity. The piece was exhibited at the Tate Modern together with his London Hack Space collective Hackoustic, at the London Urban Street Hackaton held in 2015. It was also presented at the Aberystwyth Art Center and performed in Ausland, a benchmark for underground culture and experimental music in Berlin.
