Anaisa Franco


Born 1981 Sao Paulo, Brazil. Lives and works Berlin, Germany

Anaisa Franco works with robotics and low-fi electronics to produce interactive sculptures and installation that connect mechanical processes with the subconscious human mind. Inspired by psychology, dreams and the possibilities inherent in DIY electrical engineering, Franco animates objects with behaviours and feelings to blur the boundaries between body, mind and machine.
