She is also a video activist and documentary filmmaker, producing socially relevant work with community media groups and been part of video collectives such as Paper Tiger TV. Apart from her art and media practice, May is an instructor of Art & Design, leads architectural design courses and lectures on sustainability at various universities.

Julia Varela

One of Julia’s interests is related to what we repress when we see. Part of materials that allow you to preserve the physical staging in which to run and mediatize emotions. The works she proposes are performances that, if they do not become objects, they disappear. She departs from oral testimonies, translations, ephemeral events and electronic or waste materials to disseminate the environment surrounding a subject or community.

The means of production, reception and circulation of images turn suffering into an element of domestic, speculative entertainment. Part of her work stages how our physical interaction with devices tames our understanding of context, desire, ideals and human rights. She studies the operative images and the relationship between desire and nihilism.
