Martina Stella

Martina Stella is part of the DIPLOPIA Jury.


Martina Stella is a multimedia artist. Graduated in photography and contemporary art, she specializes in Architecture and scenographies at ENSA-PB. Her theoretical research focuses on video mapping as a tool serving contemporary art, questioning the role of projection in exhibition and public spaces. For her, research and creation are intrinsically linked to technical knowledge, which she acquired while working as an audiovisual technician at the Atelier des Lumières. Her artistic practice focuses on writing as a visual arts tool, questioning the relationships between text, image, and space established by new technologies and digital scenographic devices. Editor of Revue AS and the Video Mapping European Center, she teaches in the “Création Numérique” master’s program at Sorbonne Paris Nord University.
