Olivia Tartaglia and Alex Tate are artists from Perth, Western Australia, exploring futurism, ecotechnology, far-future scifi, biological art, and the Anthropocene, and collaborating together on interactive installations including zen gardens and luminescent inflatable architecture.
Olivia works with paint, pen and installation, and her works draw inspiration from a multitude of fantastical realms, paying homage 70’s scifi concept art, classic biological illustrations and fledgling animated cinema. She is currently working on new concepts within the mediums of sculpture, textiles and installation/performance works.
Alex works primarily in digital mediums, exploring relationships between the virtual and the natural worlds. He explores the serendipitous nature and visual representations of digital glitches, and virtual terraforming as an act of aesthetic contemplation.
