eleonora edreva is:

an artist, researcher, educator, grower, collaborator, worker, renter, and mischief-maker born in Burgas, Bulgaria, raised in Chicago, and currently living and making work in Albuquerque, NM. 

My artistic work employs mediums like sound, video, scent, fiber, and paper to create interactive, participatory, and play-based experiences that aim to bring people more fully into individual and collective embodiment and connection. My current research looks at alternative forms of communication and knowledge transmission, including embodied knowledge, sensory communication, ancestral inheritance, and codes, and how they are mirrored in both digital communication tools and the non-human world’s communication systems. I’m interested in storytelling, oral histories, and artwork that can become activated through the presence of an audience. I deeply enjoy working in collaborations and create most of my projects in partnership with other artists, writers, and scientists. I hold a B.A. in English from the University of Chicago and am currently working towards an M.F.A. in Art & Ecology at the University of New Mexico.
