Name: Nelly Matorina
Which came first in your life, the science or the art?
Probably art in the form of fantasy. I used to write and tell so many stories as a child.
Which sciences relate to your art practice?
Neuroscience, biology, and also more broadly critically looking at scientific methodologies and practices. I am always thinking about how to apply different ways of thinking to broad scientific problems, for instance how do we maintain a sense of desire and curiosity while conducting scientific research? How can we create more of a daily sense of meaning for scientists involved in basic research, whose research might seem most valuable over vast amounts of time, like a hundred or two hundred years? How can we create better aesthetic experiences for human research participants?
What do you use to create your artworks?
Mainly video so far. I’ve done a little bit of installation work and radio composition which I would like to explore. In my future I’m definitely envisioning fully designed objects with philosophical functions.
