Auriea Harvey is an artist producing simulations and sculptures that bridge physical and digital space. After plumbing the depths of net art and video games, she has now turned her attention to digital sculpture, 3D printing, and mixed reality. The work is presented as sculptures that blend digital and handmade production. She is half of the artist duo Entropy8Zuper!/Tale of Tales/Song of Songs, known for their pioneering works in Internet art, video games, and XR. Auriea lives in Rome and is a Professor of Games at Kunsthochschule Kassel. She was part of the curated Christie’s auction PROOF OF SOVEREIGNTY in 2021. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Walker Art Center, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Lot 555 NFT collection, and Rhizome’s Net Art Anthology. Her video games and VR works have had international success, including exhibitions at the Tinguely Museum, Basel; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the New Museum, New York; Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York; and ZKM, Karlsruhe.
