Stephanie Misa is a visual artist and doctoral researcher at the University of Arts in Helsinki. She currently lives in Vienna, Austria. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (2012) in Installation Arts & Sculpture with Univ.-Prof. Monica Bonvicini and has a masters from the Interactive Telecommunications Program, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. Her work consistently displays an interest in complex and diverse histories, relating to these topics through her video work, sculpture, installations, prints, and collages. Her current artistic research looks at the persistence of languages relegated to its oral form, and the activation of this “orality” outside the usual educational modes of instruction— its evolution, cannibalism, appropriation of terms, and creative becomings.
