Aliaksandra Smirnova

I was trained as an architect. I also hold a MBa degree in Urban Design and Research and has more than 9-years work experience in architecture and urbanism.
But, in 2017 I was admitted to a postgraduate program “The New Normal” - a speculative think-tank that explores the opportunities posed by emerging technologies for interdisciplinary urban design practices based in the Strelka Institute for Media, Design and Architecture, Moscow. That experience made me reconsider my professional practice and shift from traditional architecture to speculative urbanism and digital art.
Currently I'm mostly focusing on 3d animation and AV performances. Topics that I cover in my artistic practice are: Anthropocene, climate change and A.I. demography, new types of governance and blockchain, automation and UBI, etc.
Along with artistic practice that I just started to develop, I'm working on communication design and creative direction of a couple o projects, as for example project PHI that proposes to put the Renewable Energy management on blockchain.
