Rosa Menkman in collaboration with Marios Isaakidis, Pandelis Diamantides, Taietzel Ticalos

Rosa Menkman is an artist and researcher. Her work focuses on noise artifacts that result from accidents in both analogue and digital media. These artifacts can offer precious insights into the otherwise obscure alchemy of standardisation and resolution setting. As compendia to this research, Menkman published the Glitch Moment/um (inc, 2011) and Beyond Resolution (i.R.D., 2020).
Key to resolution studies is that the while the standardization of resolutions generally promotes efficiency, order and functionality in our technologies, resolutions also compromise and obfuscate alternative possibilities. In 2019 Menkman won the Collide, Arts at CERN Barcelona award, which inspired her recent research into im/possible images. In this new research she aims to find new ways to resolve and as a result, understand, use and perceive through and with our technologies.
