Shuruq Tramontini is
a 3d artist and creative technologist based in Los Angeles. Her interest
traces the borders where physical reality blends into digital representation.
In and through her work she uses cutting
edge tech to tell stories of the current world we live in.
Born in Baghdad, Shuruq
grew up in the Middle East and Germany. With a Master of Art in Architecture her
work emphasizes spatial relationships and blends a deep understanding of space
and engagement with interactive technologies. She further hold a Master of
Science in Fiction and Entertainment which has led to diverse experiments in a
spatial practice merging cutting edge technologies resulting in virtual
realities, creative coding, and audience experiences.
Her latest project
Current Affairs, which is currently touring festivals and museums, is an
interactive VR experience that takes the viewer on a dive into a plastic
polluted ocean. Submerging into a photogrammetry generated landscape, the
project is linked to real-time remote sensing data (Argo floats) which keeps
the game-play alive and its species interactive.
