Luisa Pereira is a Brazilian-Uruguayan artist and systems engineer based in New York. A composer of musical systems, she has created sculptural, immersive instruments, a series of intelligent synthesizers, and year-long, ever-evolving compositions that respond to the New York sky.
Pereira has exhibited work widely, including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santiago de Chile, the New Museum's art and technology incubator in New York, FILE in São Paulo, Loop Summit in Berlin, and Bienal Kosice in Buenos Aires. Her work has been discussed in magazines like the New Yorker and Pitchfork, and art and technology blogs like Creators Project and Creative Applications.
A frequent collaborator, she has created a range of boundary-pushing musical installations and experiments in New York City, working on projects by musicians like Björk, St. Vincent, Julianna Barwick and Little Dragon.
Pereira is Assistant Arts Professor of Interactive Telecommunications at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She has developed curricula for the NYC Department of Education and the Processing Foundation, and also taught in Shanghai, Berlin and Montevideo.
