Giselle Zatonyl: The Visual Interview

The new-media artist answers our questions with images and GIFs.

By Christian J Petersen

Born and raised in Argentina, Giselle Zatonyl currently resides in New York City, which many say is the spiritual home of the new-media art movement. Considered a central figure of this movement, Zatonyl explores, through her work, the realm where fantasy and reality collide. Though strange and hallucinatory, her visions of digital futures very much reflect the changing world we live in. She recently curated one of the exhibitions at the influential Wrong Biennale for new-media art. We were very happy that she agreed to let us plug into her cerebral cortex to bring you these images and GIFs, which provide answers our visual-interview questions.
