Dr Eugenia Fratzeskou (b.1979, Athens) is a London-based artist, educator, writer, editor and critic. Pioneering types and processes of digital site-specific art and drawing have been the outcomes of her research leadership of international research projects since 2000. Her work has advanced a wider discourse on digital visualisation systems and virtual environments in site-specific, digital media art and architecture, through inventing methodologies for mapping the invisible inter-passages between virtual and actual architectural spaces within new types of site-specific virtual environments. She has created new relationships between art, architecture, philosophy, computer science and virtual reality. Her expertise expands into the relationship between symbolic logic, Boolean set operations, algebraic, geometrical processes, VR, built architecture and cosmology.
