Rewa Wright has been working with augmented (AR) and mixed reality (MR) since 2012, and has 20 years of experience in various aspects of photographic, moving, and virtual image creation. She is an inverse technologist who weaves together theory and practice in philosophy, cyberfeminism, interaction design, technoculture,
camera-less photography, and artificial vision technologies with living plants and custom built software to examine the conditions of our relationship to computation, ecology and the body. Rewa is Māori from Ngati  Taweke/Te Rarawa/Te Uri o Hau hapu of Aotearoa/New Zealand. Indigenous practices are emergent in her mixed reality performances that incorporate and adapt gestures from traditional dance, and permeate her investigation of plant-data-body ecologies. Her next project is curating the Ars Electronica Biomes Performance Experiment, a web XRroom, part of the Ars Electronica Newcastle Garden, live between 9-13 September 2020. Her personal website is rewawright.com.
