Kristina Pulejkova (1988, Skopje, Macedonia) is a London-based multimedia artist who works at the intersection of art, science and technology. She holds an MA in Art and Science from Central Saint Martins (2014) and BA+MA in Painting and Animation from the University for Applied Arts Vienna, Austria (2012). Working mainly with moving image and installation, she aims to build a subjective narrative based on data and principles from the scientific disciplines of astronomy, physics, biology and ecology. Her main subjects of interest are time, ecosystems and mechanisms, looking for connections between man and machine, the organic and the mechanical. Pulejkova’s recent research focuses around ideas of the posthuman and cyborg aesthetic. Drawing on transgenics, biotechnology and bionics, as well as the growing human reliance on technology, she explores narratives around technologically enhanced humans. By looking at human-computer interfaces, the research aims to redefine the body and the self into an extended self through technology, and explore how this prosthetic relationship might evolve into a symbiotic one in the near future. Since 2013, she also works as part of the artist duo Owen – Pulejkova. The duo aims to create series of artworks entitled Switching Heads-sound mapping the [...] , which focus on the way climate change is affecting communities and environments around the globe.
