About the speaker

Ioana Calen has a theoretical background, having graduated Philosophy with a thesis about new models for knowledge and innovation production based on emerging technologies. She has covered, as a journalist for Cotidianul, Capital, Harper’s Bazaar, Vice and many others, subjects on contemporary culture and technology, art and lifestyle. Her passion for technology emerges from the theoretical side, her main objective being the understanding of technological (or generated by technology) phenomena and the way they configure not only our culture, but also our lifestyle, biology and consciousness.

Modulab is an art, design and technology lab that she has founded together with her partner, Paul Popescu, who is a trans-media artist, hardware hacker and innovator. They now coordinate a trans-disciplinary team made up by programmers, electrical engineers, designers and makers. Their projects mainly explore elasticity and expressiveness of technology but also the cultural trends behind it in commercial projects for advertising, Public Relations and events.
