Tina Gonsalves

Tina Gonsalves completed a Masters in Art and Interactive Media at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University, Melbourne and a PhD in Creativity and Cognition Studios at The University of Sydney in 2010.

For over a decade Tina Gonsalves has been using the fluid and malleable medium of video to explore complex emotional landscapes. Rich, painterly video abstractions evoke intimate associations with personal space, memories and emotions. She is currently investigating the intersections of art, technology and science. Gonsalves is working with world-leaders in psychology, neuroscience and emotion computing in order to research and produce moving image artworks that respond to your emotions. Poetic installation video and wearable technolgy works respond to pulse, sweat, voice and emotional expressions. Her current project, Chameleon, is a collaboration with neuroscientists, technologists, curators and international research departments. Over two years, via a range of prototypic experiments she is creating an interactive video project “Chameleon”, that explores emotional contagion.

She has been awarded numerous Artist in Residence programs including The Banff New Media Institute in Canada, the Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague, Asialink Residency in Bangkok, Thailand, (Pro)duction residency at Artsway, UK, the Advanced Institute of Media Arts and Sciences residency in Japan and Arts Council England’s International Fellowship based in London. She is currently honorary artist in resident at the Institute of Neurology at UCL in London, visiting artist at the Media Lab at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, USA and artist in residence at Nokia Research Labs, Finland.

Her work has been exhibited extensively, including the ICA London, Natural History Museum London, Pompidou and festivals such as EMAF and ISEA.
