In her projects Julia addresses to semiotics and linguistics of modernity. Area of her interest includes redefinition of prior distances between biology and technology, natural and synthetic intelligence. As part of her research-based practice she tends to develop speculative narratives in the blind spots of the reality like unobvious communications and crypto-economies. She is curious about borderline bodies, cyber organisms and revisiting concepts of human and non-human. Accelerating automation and replacing people with machines poses an artist in front of new political, ethical and philosophical questions. Julia’s practice is focused on research and diving deep into the context of mutating, accelerating reality.
