Leda Vaneva explores the processes of construction in the observable world, human perceptions and their limitations. Her pieces revolve around themes like materiality, agency/control, the connection of the digital and physical realm, and hybridity. She holds MA degrees in New Media (Aalto University, Helsinki) and Photography (National Academy of Art, Soﬁa). Currently, she lives and works in Helsinki.
Unfolding the Digital Self series focuses on the compound experience of the physical and the virtual, formed by the similar response of the body to both of these sensations. Through a combination of work done by hand and through digital fabrication, the pieces outline the fragmentation of the self and map its connections to everything else.
