I BEGET THE LIGHT, BUT THE DARKNESS TOO IS OF MY NATURE – Hermes (Mercurius),
Tractatus Aureus, 1541

Gabriela Prochazka is a new media and visual artist based in Prague. Her interests are in finding new ways of narration through various types of light sources. Recently, she started to enjoy collaborations with sound designers to translate their soundscapes into site-specific art forms. She is curious in creating new types of experiences and realities that might come up during live audiovisual performances. She dreams about exploring the boundaries and intersections of stage design, light design, installation art, audiovisual & theater performances, the club scene and art world.
