About Me

Bio – Ana Mosquera

Currently based: Philadelphia, USA

ana@anamosquera.com

I am currently a practicing artist exhibiting nationally and internationally.

My work revolves around digital data collection and creating innovative methods of analysis that interrogate our daily use of technology. I see my practice as operating from the intersection of art, architecture, and information design, because my production processes require – data collection, manual database creation, organization, synthesis and correlation of information, urban and GIS mapping analysis, textile fabrication, and space formation through installation.

The combination of these multidisciplinary processes allows me to organize and make sense of specific digital experiences while exploring the relationship between physical and digital places.
