About the Instructor:

Lorena Salomé is a Toronto- based artist with a background in photography, film, tech, and a BFA from OCAD University where she specialized in electromechanical sculpture. Salomé is currently doing her Masters on Digital Media at York University. She incorporates various technologies in her work using everyday objects and dismantled electronics to make sound sculptures and robots. From the early video works to the kinetic installations there is always a point in common, the use of found and repurposed objects. Her work has been exhibited and published locally and internationally since 2003. Salomé has taught electronics and video in several educational institutions and art galleries in Canada and Argentina
