SHORT BIO and CV

RESUME

Rudolfo Quintas is an artist, performer and interaction designer who seeks to expand the horizons and language of contemporary art. During the last 4-5 years Rudolfo has  been exploring domains of gesture and motion analyses, computer graphics and electronic music, new interfaces for musical expression, often related to augmented reality. Quinta’s research into the body as interface has been a fundamental element in his my work frequently formalized in performance, installation art and writings.

In 2009 he was awarded with the Transmediale Distiction Award from Transmediale Festival for Art and Digital Culture Berlin and his work was published in Younger Than Jesus: The Artist Directory  co-published by the New Museum New York and Phaidon Press, a directory which includes a survey of the most emergent young artists in the world. During the last 4 years my work was work in conferences, major galleries and media art festivals in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Holland, England, Germany, Finland, Slovakia, Mexico, Turkey and the USA.

In 2010 he organized a international workshop called GEAR: 1st International Workshop for Practice based Research in Art and Design: Sound and Interactive Media (http://www.gear-up.info); He also started a music project called CRISIS that was awarded the Levis Unfamus Music Award.
