Rebecca Adorno
b. 1985 in Santurce, Puerto Rico.

As an undergrad student Adorno attempted to study Electrical Engineering, but after three years in the program she realized that she was bored due to the lack of hands on experience, therefore she made a major switch in concentrations to Fine Arts in the University of Puerto Rico. There, she was encouraged to mix her Engineering knowledge with her conceptual approach to create art. In 2008 she moved to New York City to pursue an MFA in Computer Arts from the School of Visual Arts, where she graduated with honors in 2010. Her work has been shown in New York, Montreal, Puerto Rico, Argentina and is part of the Museum of Ponce’s permanent collection.

By means of technology and sound her interactive installations tend to explore various topics, from the convergence of sound and space awareness, socio political conflicts, to the thin line between private and public narratives. She’s currently investigating plant adaptation to climate change and the role of biotechnology as a possible means to stopping the imminent extinction of humanity.
