Clara Boj & Diego Díaz - Lalalab


Clara Boj and Diego Diaz have been working together since 2000. Their work critically engages new media technologies and the notion of public space within the hybrid city.

Their main projects propose new devices (conceptual and technological) to reformulate the perception and experience of urban environments. In this direction, they like to bring their work directly to the street and provoke encounters between people, physical places and the digital space. In many of their projects, they explore nonlinear narrative using geolocation devices and other locative media resources to create narratives that combine layers of physical and digital information. Recently they are working with Machine Learning techniques in order to analyze how computers can understand and predict our future

Their projects and works have been shown in festivals, museums and art centres with international and national prestige such as Singapore Art Museum, Kiasma Museum (Helsinki), ISEA (San Jose, California), Big Day Out (Australia), La Casa Encendida (Madrid), and Sonar (Barcelona), among many others.They have enjoyed residencies in several art and research institutions. Among other distinctions, they have been awarded with Alfons Roig Grant 2006 and Vida 13.2 Art and Artificial Life International Competition

They both combine their research with teaching positions. Currently Clara teaches a Fine Arts degree at Valencia Polytechnic University. Diego is associate professor at Jaume I University where he teaches at the Videogames Design Degree.At present time they are developing, together with a small group of researchers, the project Reset Mar Menor, with the financial support of the Carasso Foundation and the Machine Biography project funded by the BBVA Foundation in the 2019 Leonardo Grant for Researchers and Cultural Creators.
