Juan Miceli is an audiovisual artist based out of Buenos Aires and Montreal, who has studied both Fashion Design and Electronic Art. In 2022, Juan received an ELAP Scholarship which has supported his Research Internship at Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts, where he has conducted a research project titled Inverse Interface under the tutelage of Ricardo Dal Farra. This internship research fed into Juan’s Master’s thesis in the Aesthetics and Technology of Electronic Arts, which he is pursuing at the National University Tres de Febrero (UNTreF) under the direction of Mariela Yeregui (PhD) and Andres Rodriguez (PhD).
The materiality of the Inverse Interface research creation project consists of the development of collaborative video installations, a genealogical work in relation to technological practices like vision machines, and experimentation with immersive environments, bodies and interfaces. Juan’s work stems from a Latin American perspective that is in a permanent stage of construction. Working with a fusion of media including sculpture, video, installation, generative video, digital modelling and performance, Juan develops exhibitions and research projects that investigate the relationship between art, the body and technology.
Juan’s work has been supported by such institutions as Milieux Institute, Concordia Fine Arts, National Fund for the Arts (Arg), San Martin University (UNSAM), CCGSM, and the National Contemporary Dance Company and Expressions Cultural Center (US), among others. His video installations have been exhibited at the Concordia Black Box, Fourth Space, C3 Science Center, the National Center of Music and Dance, B. Rivadavia Museum of Natural Sciences, ThisIsNotAGallery, the MACA Junín Museum, Expressions Cultural Center, the University of Cordoba, the Spanish Cooperation Center in Buenos Aires, and the Recoleta Cultural Center, to name a few.
