2023 > PIXEL LIGHTS,  Timisoara,  RO


My interactive installation entitled “Narcissus in the Digital Era”  was chosen for Pixel Lights Open Call in Timisoara, Romania. Can't wait to share my work with new audiences and meet other artists. Huge thanks to the organizers for this amazing opportunity!






2023 > Pixels From a Future Past,  Arad,  RO


As Timisoara’s cultural activities extend to multiple cities throughout Romania, I took part in the exhibition entitled “Pixels from a Past Future”.
The interactive installations aim to visualize empathy and closeness and to reverberate in a nature that is fading away by capturing the presence of the visitor in the flow of data. Memories come back to life in the form of pixels, causing new fears. Are we captives of our past like Narcissus to his image, or can we be born again? Recent events increasingly question the current order, and there is a need for a new agreement with ourselves and the planet. Are we able to achieve it? Have we begun to dream about it? Is it already written?"





2022 > Fête des Lumières, Lyon, FR



For the 2022 edition of Fete des Lumieres, I worked on the "Nos Utopies" project, an interactive performance that gathered many talented people from around the world.

My part in this project consisted of creating an interactive system for the performers using machine learning that affected the overall sound ensemble as well as creating and performing live the musical composition for the project.






2022 > Rezidenta9, WhereArtThou Exhibition, Bucharest, RO

Why visit the exhibition WhereArtThou? : 5 Romanian artists question surveillance in the digital age?
You have the opportunity to do an act of "sousveillance" - a process of reverse surveillance, using “inverse:surveillance”, an interactive multimedia installation by Denis Flueraru.

The installation conceptualises Foucault’s “panopticism” and the act of “sousveillance” and it takes the form of a human-scale CCTV whereas its users can observe who is behind the state of power.
The challenge represents the absolute power of the algorithm Which means the end of our privacy and also the idea that We create our own constraints that can lead to a dystopian Society.






2022 > Spotlight Festival, Bucharest, RO


My installation entitled “The Particle Composer” will be showcased this weekend (14-16.10) in front of the NOVOTEL on Calea Victoriei for this year’s edition of Spotlight.

As part of this year’s edition of ARS ELECTRONICA, I will have the chance to showcase two of my interactive installations: “Particle Composer” and “Narcissus in the Digital Era”. 

LOCATION: ATELIERHAUS SALZAMT




2022 > FAR Community
Proud to be amongst such an inspiring and creative community



2022 > White Imprint, Mobius Gallery, Bucharest, RO




Exhibition extended until 2nd of October and will also be part of NAG - Noaptea Albă a Galeriilor 
“White Imprint” directly addresses the need for each of us to understand, decode and transmit signs to others, in an age when we realise that the traces we leave on the planet can be overwhelming for human life. Social media gives everyone the opportunity to send out signs and mark the digital environment instantaneously, generating a giant digital carbon footprint. Who and how decides which memories (tokens) are worth keeping? For how long?


The works use various media - magnetic tape, conversational robot based on Artificial Intelligence, algorithmic composition or bio-art - and also classical media. Each of the artists explores a medium of expression, tracing the signs in each.
