Fernanda D’Agostino


Fernanda’s internationally exhibited installations all incorporate interactive video and sound in novel ways. She’s the recipient of a Bronson Fellowship, Flintridge Foundation Fellowship, NEA and Ford Family Foundation Funding. At the American Academy of Rome Fernanda researched and developed The Method of Loci, a multi chambered installation combining sculpture and interactive video to investigate place-based memory. “The Method of Loci” opened at The Art Gym in 2013 and was an ArtForum International Critic’s Pick. Individual rooms travelled to Currents New Media 2012 and 2014, Festival de la Imagin, Columbia, & SOMARTS, San Francisco for the SoundWave Biennial. Fernanda’s interactive video installation, Generativity was installed at Suyama Space, Seattle 2016. As New Media Fellow at Open Signal PDX Fernanda developed Borderline, a multi-site project investigating climate change, mass migration and surveillance. Borderline (2017-2020) combines prerecorded scientific imaging about Climate Change, Government Surveillance video from the border, and performance video investigating generational trauma, with surveillance camera video of viewers through coding, creating many layers of connotation. Connecting all Fernanda’s work is the idea of the viewer as an active participant immersed in a prepared environment. Her projects bridge the divide between the digital and the real to create immersive time-based works that unfold in surprising ways. Fernanda’s current projects are Nossas Aguas which investigates the world’s waters from a scared perspective, and The Liminal Performance Space, a virtual performance installation which allows artists to overcome great distances and social isolation to collaborate.
