Curriculum Vitae

Sandro_wordpressCV

I am a Brazilian performance artist, interaction designer and researcher, living in Denmark since 2007. I hold a Master degree of Interaction Design from Kolding School of Design and a Bachelor degree of ‘Art and Technology’ from Aalborg University. I have collaborated in several academic research projects and conferences. Additionally, I have a strong background in performance art, modern dance and acting.

Education:

Master of Interaction Design, 2013-2015 (Kolding School of Design – Denmark)

The foundation of the programme of Communication Design in the Kolding School of Design is to teach how to improve communication by strategy, to bring awareness or change behaviour, or how to deliver a holistic service or experience by interaction. I have focused on improving social interactions and communication by strategy.

Bachelor degree of Art & Technology, 2009-2012 (Aalborg University – Denmark)

‘Art and Technology’ is an interdisciplinary study, where the students learn to work project-based in groups, using different types of technologies, applying theory and reflecting upon the results in an academic framework. ‘Art and Technology’ challenges the students to express their creativity artistically. The students learn computer-programming skills, which they use to create interactive and experimental artistic designs. The students also learn to work with modern materials, light, sound, video and new media.

Cinema Studies, 2011 (University of Westminster, London – United Kingdom)

I have attended theoretical and practice-based courses related to cinema studies and contemporary art as part of the Bachelor degree programme – one semester abroad.
