Nancy Mauro-Flude is an artist, feminist theorist and digital caretaker. Her research is driven by the demystification of technology and the ‘mystification’ that lies in and through the performance of the machinic assemblage. The talismanic logic of island cultures and medium experimentation are foundations for her work.

Under various alias and in various cooperations, Nancy actively works to fuse radical forms of self-determination by introducing experimental pedagogy with a particular focus on relatively conservative and weakly networked regions.

"...Gray magics, hijackings, driftings and seizures of power the sensitive and subversive subterfuges by which she urges, twists and explores the aesthetic politic of the open source spirit" (Anne Goldenberg, 2013) ".dpi feminist journal of art and digital culture."

Alumni of Piet Zwart Institute, co founder of Moddr part of the WORM venue in Rotterdam.

She develops, designs and delivers "Computing Art, Technology, and Materiality research integrated teaching"
