Alexandra Nima (Anima) is an Austrian born, interdisciplinary artist living and working in Estonia. As a creative hybrid, she works at the intersection of psychology, visual arts, and technology.
Since 2008, she has created various archetype-inspired textile suits, written over 1.000 pages of English-speaking lyrics, and experimented with broadcast media via public tv performances in Austria, Estonia, Australia, and Germany.
In 2010, her Bachelor’s thesis- written for a business degree- was requested to be featured in Kunsthalle Baden-Baden’s research library on women in the arts.
In recent years, she has expanded her textile work, incorporating wearable electronics into her designs, aimed at a broader, digital-interactive type of performance.
At Copper Leg Art residency, she is crafting an interactive dress, that will be triggered via remote, public voting. In addition, she will conduct a screenprinting workshop at Rae Schoolhouse on October 10.
