Italian media artist and architect - expert of integration processes between art, architecture, new media and science - she lives and works in Barcelona.
Her work involves the creation of sensorial and perceptual mechanisms in immersive and augmented environments. Her artistic investigation examines how patterns of consciousness, perception and identity emerge in such settings.

[From 1998 to 2002 she lived and worked in Barcelona (Spain), from 2003 to 2012 in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), from 2013 to 2015 in Venice (Italy)].

She graduated with honors in Architecture (Federico II University, Naples) and received her specialization in Theories of Architecture (La Sapienza University, Rome).
After obtaining a Master in Digital Arts (Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona), she was invited at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam (2004-2005), with final publication (Sonia Cillari, Emotional Skin. Performance Space Expression, Rijksakademie Doc 04, incl. DVD, Veenman Publishers, Amsterdam 2006).

As an artist, she has been specifically interested in fields of research concerning 'immersive spaces' and the ‘body as interface’, consequently investigating possibilities of our multisensory spatial experience.
She has been artist in residence at V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media (Rotterdam 2004), Netherlands Media Art Institute/NIMk and STEIM: Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (Amsterdam 2006 and 2010), [ars]numerica (Montbeliard 2009) and Claudio Buziol Foundation (Venice 2010).
Her installations - at the intersection of architecture and performance art - have been exhibited internationally.
She has received numerous international awards - including the ‘First Prize’ at VIDA 13.0: Art & Artificial Life International Competition (Madrid 2010), the ‘Art Division Excellence Award’ at the 11th Japan Media Arts Festival (Tokyo 2007), the ‘Honorary Mentions’ at VIDA 9.0 (Madrid 2006) and Prix Ars Electronica - Interactive Art (Linz 2007 and 2011).

With fiftheen years experience, she has curated and organized experimental art exhibitions and cultural events, as art director and project manager - among others in Amsterdam, Barcelona and Rotterdam.

For over ten years she taught Digital Art and its disciplines, with a focus on the practices related to the experience of physical reality through our sensory system. Workshop leader and advisor in various schools of art, universities and research institutes in Europe.

In addition to several publications about her artistic research, she has given seminars and conferences internationally.
