Ornella Fieres is a German multimedia artist living in Berlin. Her work deals with the transitions between the analogue and digital space, as well as with the loss and transformation of data and energy in an attempt to capture and transmit moments via recording technologies. 

To investigate these media and time intersections, she develops different photography, video, and sound techniques that forcefully merge, not only different mediums, but also diverse moments in time: She predominantly works with photography and documentary film material from the 1940s to the 1960s from Germany and the US and processes the found footage with self-built apparatuses, autonomous algorithms or open source software to create new singular moments that carry lingering digital and analogue traces of passed instants.
