Shuruq Tramontini is an interactive designer and creative technologist currently based in Los Angeles. Her interest lies in speculative storytelling using contemporary tools and mediums.
Born in Baghdad, Shuruq grew up in the Middle East and Germany. With a Master of Art in Architecture Shuruq’s work emphasizes spatial relationships and her work blends a deep understanding of space and engagement with interactive technologies. She further holds 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 museum, is an interactive VR experience that takes the viewer on a dive into our plastic polluted oceans. Submerging into a photogrammetry generated landscape, the project is linked to real-time remote sensing data (Argo floats) which keeps the environment and its species alive and on-going in the experience.
