Alexandra Niaka is an interactive media artist. She holds a Master of Architecture in Design for Performance and Interaction from the Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL) and a diploma of architecture from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She expresses herself through interactive installations, immersive technologies, and written text. Through her work, she tries to provide creative answers to questions concerning the relation between human and technology and explore the way in which this relation determines how we perceive, and interact with, our surrounding reality. To that end, she focuses on the use of cutting-edge technology to create Mixed, Virtual and Augmented Reality experiences. Her research focuses on theories of consciousness and perception and she tries to render visible intangible concepts like the brain processes that occur during perceptual experiences. Her work is based on the biofeedback loop between brain data and the surrounding reality. Her main experimentation tool is the EEG headset. She has worked for London- based creative studios, like The Workers (inc.) and Jason Bruges studio.
