Diana Sánchez Barrios is a designer, researcher and poet from Colombia.
She studied design but consider herself a curious mind without a professional label.
Her work is anti disciplinary and experimental. She works across disciplines and media exploring human practices and values that shape design and our concepts of technology, beauty, nature, poetics and affection.
She looks forward to explore the interrelations between our technological and biological brain creating experiences and personal technologies that shape the poetics and politics of senses, perception and emotions.
She aims to create scenarios where a human-centered world is no longer possible, but a world in which we propose empathy with all life forms. Her work inquires into ethical and caring practices of science and technology in society, placing these practices in a post-human/ multi-species world through art and design. She studied Design at Los Andes University in Colombia.
She is currently a graduate student in the Master in Digital and Media at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).
