LIA lives and works in Vienna, Austria, and is considered one of the pioneers of software and net art. Her practice spans video, performance, software, installations, sculpture, projection and digital application. Primarily working in code, LIA translates concepts into formal written structures which are then used to create 'machines' that generate real-time multimedia outputs. LIA’s work combines traditions of drawing and painting with the aesthetics of digital images and algorithms, characterised by a minimalist quality and by an affinity with conceptual art. She focuses on the translation of certain experienced principles into abstract forms, movements and colours in order to allow the viewer to explore the same on a subconscious level.
