I am Auriea Harvey (US/BE), a Visual Artist working in traditional and interactive media. I am trained as a sculptor (Parsons School of Design, NYC), auto-didact designer (Jan van Eyck Academy, Maastricht) and have an obsession with drawing (Studio Escalier, Paris). Online since the beginnings of the web in 1994, I am known for Internet art, web/interaction design, videogame theory, experimental software creation, 3D scanning, modelling and printing. I am always exploring the intersections of technological creation and traditional artistic craft.
I have a long term collaboration with Michaël Samyn as co-founder of and Tale of Tales (nee Entropy8Zuper!), our studio in Gent, Belgium. With Tale of Tales, I’ve been designer, art director and lead 3d artist on 8 video games and countless other projects, all openly available online. Our current on-going projects are Cathedral-in-the-Clouds where we are building a VR cathedral and digital versions of ecclesiastical artworks for everyone to contemplate and enjoy; and TheEndlessForest, a magical online multiplayer game where everyone plays a deer. In these interactive works we bring together our love for art history, mythology, philosophy of videogame design, respect for digital/analog artistic legacies and our general nerdiness.
