Eva Papamargariti grew up in Greece where she graduated from the Department of Architecture, University of Thessaly with a Diploma in Architecture (2012).
Papamargariti holds a Masters Degree in Visual Communication Design from Royal College of Art, London. Her practice focuses on time-based media (video, gif animations) as well as printed material and sculptural installations that explore the relationship between digital space and (im)material reality. She is interested in the creation of 2D/3D rendered spaces, and scenarios which provoke narrations based on obscure simultaneous situations. These happen on a daily basis, on the verge of digital and physical environments and blur the boundaries between these ‘ecosystems’. Her work delves into issues and themes related to simultaneity, the merging and dissolving of our surroundings with the virtual, and the constant diffusion of fabricated synthetic images that define and fragment our identity and everyday experience. Her work also explores processes that are established through online presence, traces our actions leave on objects, and habitats built through our continuous interaction with devices and machinic artifacts.
