Rebecca Adorno

Residency: December 2018

My practice resides at the intersection of art, physics of sound and technology. Through a series of objects and audiovisual interventions, I explore several topics from the convergence of sound with the invasion of privacy, to the parallels between aesthetics of beauty and lethality: signs and poetic contents that arise when catastrophic events, show flashes of sublime beauty. During the residency, I will continue to create work around my studies in Mycology.

Rebecca Adorno is a New York-based artist born and raised in Puerto Rico. As an undergrad student, Adorno attempted to study Electrical Engineering, but after three years in the program, she realized that she was bored due to the lack of hands-on experience; therefore she made a significant switch in concentrations to Fine Arts in the University of Puerto Rico. There, she was encouraged to mix her engineering knowledge with her conceptual approach to create art. In 2008, she moved to New York City to pursue an MFA in Computer Arts from the School of Visual Arts, where she graduated with honors in 2010. Her work has been shown in New York, Montreal, Puerto Rico and is part of the Museum of Ponce’s permanent collection.

Rebecca’s residency is presented in partnership by EMBAJADA 406, Artists Alliance Inc, and The Clemente
