About Me

Alvaro Lacouture

I was born in Bogotá , Colombia in 1992. As an undergraduate, I completed my studies in Anthropology and Electronic Media Arts at Universidad de los Andes. I am currently enrolled in NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, where I am further exploring the use of technology to create meaningful experiences through a human-first approach. I see the combination of different disciplines involving art, science, and technology as a vast field with unlimited potential. As an artist and anthropologist interested in human-computer interaction, my designs work towards the development of aesthetic experiences where the individual becomes the most essential piece. Most of my projects seek to find connection between the humans through digitally crafted experiences, and they involve the creation of audiovisual immersive experiences.

My projects have addressed the creation of generative digital content and the elaboration of multimedia installations, which sometimes use coding, game engines, websites, applications, mixed reality experiences, and custom designed software and hardware.

I’m open to any type of communication and collaboration.
