M.Sc., M.A., B.Sc.
Los Angeles, USA

Hei, my name is Shuruq Tramontini. I define myself as a media artist/interactive designer/creative technologist, but it is not easy to pinpoint it into one direction solely. Currently I am based in Los Angeles. My  interest traces the borders where physical reality blends into digital representation. In and through my work I use cutting edge tech with the goal of telling stories of our currentt world we live in.  

Born in Baghdad, I grew up in the Middle East and Germany. With a Master of Art in Architecture my work emphasizes spatial relationships and blends a deep understanding of space and engagement with interactive technologies. I 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.

My latest project Current Affairs, which is currently touring festivals and museums, 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 game-play alive and its species interactive.
