Gabriela Valdespino is an artist and designer whose work encompasses photography, moving images, sound and performance. In her artistic practice she explores the relationship between the physical and spatial constructions, focussing on social dynamics and the resulting somatic affects. Her investigations begin with contemplative perceptual exercises to develop her own methods, such as hypersensitive soundwalks. Her work critically examines the historical, present and potential future interactions of individuals with and through technological interfaces. This investigation is emphasised by the inclusion of multimedia elements in performative contexts that serve as tools for the interplay of human engagement and technological mediation. In 2022 in collaboration with other artists, Gabriela co-initiated the project restore_ a series of site-specific performances in off-spaces around Bremen. She is currently completing a Master of Arts in Digital Media.
