Rebecca Adorno (b. 1985) lives and works between New York and Puerto Rico. She received a BA in Fine Art from the University of Puerto Rico and an MFA in Computer Arts from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York.  She has been exhibiting in group shows in Puerto Rico since 2006 including at Museo de Arte de Ponce, Ponce, Puerto Rico (2008), Embajada, San Juan, Puerto Rico (2018) El Lobi, San Juan, Puerto Rico (2018) and most recently in Chicago at Produce Model Gallery (2018).

Her work resides at the intersection of art, technology, and physics of sound while exploring various topics, from the convergence of sound and space awareness to the parallels between aesthetics of beauty and lethality: signs and poetic contents that arise when catastrophic events, such as climate change or torture, show flashes of sublime beauty.
