Visual artist based in New York working in a range of media including mechanical sculpture, performance and video art. With a background in new media, engineering, and visual art, her work references different concepts behind technology and human behavior by way of combining both new and traditional art forms. It reflects her interests in people's relationship with technology, plus our own behaviors as responses to ideas about place, perception and illusion in the wake of its progress. To support the concepts, she uses electronic hacks and sculptural forms, new media technologies and moving image, demonstrating relationships between objects whether digital, analog, in motion or still. The materials she chooses are physical and optical. It combines the objective with the subjective, examining the in between tensions and concepts explored.

DeFelice is an Assistant Professor of Media Studies, and Digital Arts faculty at Pratt Institute; Other interests include: space, hacking, second-order belief, knife-throwing, synesthesia, birds, and Google.
