Nancy Mauro-Flude’s work consists of 4D performances and installations investigating machine theatre and narratives of digital processes. Her research bends in from our complex mortal world into the virtual dark and back again. As an artist working with and developing FLOSS tools and electronics, her work is exhibited and presented globally in Australia, Europe, South America, and Asia. She is an alumna of DasArts: Advanced Institute for Performing Arts Amsterdam. In 2007, she was awarded an MFA in Media Design, Piet Zwart Inst.
