About Claudia Rafael:
Claudia Rafael is a Digital Artist. Her work focuses on issues of technology, extended and mixed realities. Rafael is interested in investigating how "digitalism forms new aesthetics" related to nature, art and popular culture.
She advocates for an emancipatory use of digital tools like AR and AI that can transcend prevailing social norms on beauty through offering alternative possibilities of (self)imagination to everyone — not only for the virtual but ultimately in the physical world.
About Mat Maitland:
“The artistic heir to Warholian tradition, recalibrated in the digital age, Mat Maitland’s work blurs the boundary between high and low culture. His collages are pop, playful, cerebral and surreal. They’re steeped in nostalgia in as much as they reference future worlds, as witty commentaries on contemporary culture.” (Dazed Beauty)"
