About me


I’m a designer and musician.

I’m an Associate Professor (with Habilitation) at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto. I am the author of the books Art and Computation (2022) and Artificial Aesthetics: Creative Practices in Computational Art and Design (2016).

I collaborate with Pedro Tudela in the @c project since 2000. In 2003 we started the Crónica label, which releases experimental and electronic music.

I co-founded the xCoAx conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X, with previous editions in Bergamo 2013, Porto 2014, Glasgow 2015, Bergamo 2016, Lisbon 2017Madrid 2018, Milan 2019, Graz 2020, Online 2021, Coimbra 2022, and an upcoming edition in Konstanz in 2023. I also helped to organize the Invisible Places symposium (2014 in Viseu, 2017 in Ponta Delgada), ICLI 2014 and 2018. I am a researcher at i2ADS and INESC TEC.
