LIA (Artist)

Lia is an Austrian software artist. Her work includes the early Net Art sites re-move.org and turux.at. In 2003 she co-curated the Abstraction Now exhibition (Internet Projects and Medialounge) at the Künstlerhaus Wien in Vienna, Austria.[1] In 2003 Lia received an Award of Distinction in the Net Vision/Net Excellence Category for re-move.org.[2]

In the 1990s and early 2000s, she and her collaborators at Turux employed software normally used for multimedia CD-ROMs and Web page enhancements, notably Macromedia Director, to create animated abstract images, which "demonstrates the raw visual horsepower of these tools when they’re not yoked to some mundane purpose."[3] By the mid-2000s, Lia's added iOS apps [4] to her repertoire, becoming one of the first artists to achieve recognition in this new medium.[5]

She is a founding member of the media-label Crónica, based in Porto, Portugal.
