Sonia Armaniaco

Biography


Sonia is an AudioVisual artist who sometime lives and work in Italy, otherwise where her laptop brings her. She has shown her audiovisual works worldwide since 1985. She started with 2 super8 s then homemade vhs’s. She has also been involved in live audiovisual performances and video installations, especially in the United States (NYC, Philadelphia and all over California). Music was her first passion. Because of this she has deep sympathy for her right side of the brain, and since the right side works nonlinearly she necessarily loves the kind of “editing” that happens in dreams. She considers dreams as investigation territories and cut\ips working, always looking for accidental beauty using serendipity patterns.
