Quintessence Dome Lab Residence 2020

(Mataró, 1985) Moon Ribas is a cyborg artist best known for developing the Seismic Sense, an online seismic sensor implanted in her feet that allows her to perceive earthquakes taking place anywhere in the planet through vibrations in real time. In order to share her experience, she then translates her seismic sense on stage. Ribas transposes the earthquakes into either sound, in her piece Seismic Percussion; or dance, in Waiting For Earthquakes. In these performances the Earth is the composer and the choreographer; and Ribas, the interpreter.  In 2010 she co-founded the Cyborg Foundation, an international organisation that aims to help people become cyborgs, defend cyborg rights and promote cyborg art.

Eloy Roldan

Quintessence Dome Lab Residence 2020

I was born in Madrid but I have lived in Barcelona for years. I studied the degree in Cinematography at the School of Cinema and Audiovisuals of Catalonia (ESCAC) and I specialised in digital effects. After two years working in the sector, now I make my way with my own studio doing projects for film, advertising and video clips.

At the same time, I develop my work as a digital artist: still images made in 3D software and conceived under surreal premises and methods.

I address topics such as the procedures of the unconscious, semiotic games or the mechanisms of desire; Now in search of new formats, new forms of expression and of exploring the limits of language.

Mirte de Vrieze

Mirte de Vrieze

Quintessence Dome Lab Residence 2020

Mirte de Vrieze is a Dutch audiovisual artist, composer and writer. Coming from a musical

background she spent the last couple of years broadening and diversifying her Eield of work and skillset. In 2020 she has earned her master degree in Music Production, Technology and Innovation at the Berklee College of Music Valencia Campus, Spain, researching the function of immersive audio in storytelling.

With influences ranging from Imogen Heap and Stevie Wonder to Michael Ancel to Andrew Thomas Huang, her work revolves around merging disciplines and creating connections, turning the necessity for bridging the gaps in between those into the centrepiece of her creative endeavours.

Mirte is passionate about innovative and interactive multimedia technologies, which she uses to create immersive worlds. By telling stories in surrealistic environments she explores the realms of imaginary fantasy worlds, cyberpunk and bio inspired design. Thematically she focusses on social behaviour and the unwritten neurotypical rules. In doing so, Mirte aims to let her audience consciously sense their surroundings and connect with themselves and each other by applying Tony Robbin’s six human needs.

In the past few years Mirte has worked and collaborated on various projects, such as VR

applications, an interactive panorama, AV performances, EP and singles. Her latest work

include a VR children’s book and a 360 ̊ story ‘The Cave’.
