Each week, host Gabriel Barcia-Colombo speaks with a new artist, curator, technologist, AI, collector, innovator, about the ever-changing relationship between art and tech.
Dorothy Santos is a writer, curator, researcher, academic, educator, artist, and, currently, a doctoral student at UC Santa Cruz. Her passions run from film to mysticism and "witchy things." She is also the host of Art Practical podcast, PRNT SCRN, focused on bridging the gaps between analog, new media, and digital art practices.
In this episode, SOTA host, Andrew Herman introduces Dorothy and, together, they discuss her journey into the arts, her background in science and love for biology, and the wide variety of interests Dorothy explores through her art writing and creative projects. They also touch upon June's theme, "Queerness," as Andrew hands off the mic for the remainder of the month.
