Petra is an architect and media artist, born in Vienna, Austria. Her artistic practice and theoretical research bring together the fields of media art, architecture, computer science and visual culture. In her works Petra creates scenarios of encounter in which spatial boundaries of the physical, the virtual, the social and the subjective become perforated and hybridized. Petra’s current research employs locative and pervasive media in the context of urban geographies. The series of "Impossible Geographies" weaves a system of electronic negotiations that aims to move the contact surface of the virtual further into the physical space that is naturally inhabited by the participants. Leaking between the virtual and the physical or piercing the urban fabric, these installations produce an unstable, maybe infected, and yet elastic and permeable edge in-between.
