Irini (she/her) is an artist and educator who works with creative coding and machine learning, exploring critical and caring modes of engaging with the body. Her practice aims to unsettle our perception of the anthropomorphic dancer and speculate on its possible becomings beyond dualisms and disciplinary boundaries.
She has presented her works, be they dance performances, videos or research articles in Athens, London, Berlin and Kyiv, within cultural institutions and platforms like Onassis Cultural Centre, and Somerset House.
As a lecturer, Irini is mainly teaching Data and Machine Learning for Artistic Practice at Goldsmiths, and Artificial Intelligence for the Media at UAL Creative Computing Institute. She is particularly interested in approaching AI in a disruptive way, as a means for generating visual, verbal, dancing or acoustic expressions of the Other.
She lives in-between London (UK) and Tinos (GR).
