My name is Valia Fetisov
. I'm a media artist and software engineer
interested in the intersection of social psychology and technology. More specifically, my passion is constructing artificial situations to explore people's reactions. If you don't want to read further, here is an old video
that introduces my work.
For the past 7 years I worked for the Garage Museum archive department
in Moscow (2 years) and Strelka Institute
(5 years). Most of my work was focused around Full stack and Frontend development of internal tools, websites for special projects like the-m-all
, an international architectural competition platform used by thousands of applicants. I also take analitics and data-visualisation as freelance projects.
At the same time, I'm still teaching at the Rodchenko School of Photography and New Media in Moscow with a workshop-based course: “Technical Introduction to a Media Art.” In this course, during a one-year period students learn about web scraping, interactive and 3D interfaces, internet-connected-devices and much more. But my job is not to teach students how to use these programs, but rather inspire them and lower the barrier.
Just in case you're interested in technologies I have experience with: git, node.js, react.js, d3.js, python, opencv, nginx, docker, electron, MongoDB, MySQL; arduino, esp8266, MQTT, PureData, Max/MSP/Jitter, Unity 3D and Fusion 360. Here is my github
