PhD Student at the Interactive Art Doctor Degree

My investigation — which is currently in progress — in the area of interactive art, seeks to demystify the untouchable relationship between art and branding resorting to the use of interactivity. This will be exploited as an art based approach when creating a visual brand, through a triangle relationship between the visual artist, the brand and the spectator, a relationship that will focus on the user. There are three proposed pillars that help support this research, inter-relating the creative force with the experience: Plasticity, Identity and Experience.
