Andrea Polli http://www.andreapolli.com is the Artistic Director of ISEA2012: Machine Wilderness to be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico and the surrounding region from September 19-24, 2012. See http://www.isea2012.org for more information and to apply. Polli's media art work resides in the intersection between art and science, and she has developed projects related to perception and cognition, complexity science, and human behavior. Her projects are hybrids that feed into multiple areas of research and her work often offers new "readings" of data produced by natural systems that bring to light unfamiliar aspects of the information. Projects she has created include a 1992 system using the Lorenz attractor as a structure to guide human/computer musical improvisation and a long-running performance project started in 1996, Intuitive Ocusonics, a system for performing sound using eye movements. She currently works in collaboration with meteorological and environmental scientists to develop systems for understanding storms and climate through sound, and a collaboration with Dr. Glenn Van Knowe, a lead scientist at MESO, called Atmospherics/Weather Works presents a spatialized sonification of highly detailed models of storms that devastated the New York area.
