Claudia Maté (1985, Spain) lives and work in Paris. She works in a large area of new media and online based works. Her works come from a variety of formats including programming, 3D, video, videogames, VR, GIF and sound. She is Co- founder and curator at cloaque.org. Her work manages to blend the familiar with the odd, and the futuristic with strange retro tropes. She has realised her ambition to fuse the internet and interactive 3D technology into an aesthetic that is non-ideological and defines a never-ending new aesthetic – into a surreal and pixelated world where anything is possible, and nothing is as it seems. Mate’s works has been exhibited internationally in Spain, USA, France, Switzerland, Austria, Canada, Croatia, Italy, Germany, Chile, Argentina, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden, Venezuela, Korea, Mexico, Greece, Czech Republic, Iran, Peru, Lithuania, UK and online.
