Suzete Venturelli is a professor, researcher, and computer artist at the Instituto de Artes at the Universidade de Brasília (UnB), in Brazil’s only Art & Technology master’s program, which she instigated and organized during its first few years of operation. In 1987 Venturelli began researching computer art and design in a wide range of technologies. She was the major organizer of a group of artists, all of whom lived in Brasilia, which became the experimental hub for Brazilian electronic art, and which led to the creation of the Infoestética group. Venturelli published the following books: Arte: espaço_tempo_imagem (UnB, 2004), and Imagem interativa (UnB, 2008), a collaborative work with Mário Maciel. Her scientific, technological, and artistic work involves computer art, art and technology, virtual reality, hyper-media systems, animation, digital art, virtual environments, interactive images, and immersion in real time.
This text reflects her profound knowledge of digital art and technology, digital poetics, and the concept of decentralization and viability in new exchanges.
