Yellow [hola]

I'm ilithya, a multidisciplinary artist with a background in creative development and design from México, based in Hamburg, Germany.

As an artist I have a keen interest in technology, feelings, illustration, street art, and music. I create artworks with programming and algorithms. My preferred medium to produce is writing shaders in OpenGL Shading Language.

I'm currently exploring on-chain generative art, machine learning, and new media art technologies to create art on the web, physical installations, audiovisual/visual art, and live performances. I'm interested in creating unusual emotional and captivating visual experiences, sometimes interactive, as I push and pull the intersection of art and technology.

Artist collectives and residencies:

Shader workshops:

I co-host a twitch stream to learn and practice shaders with Eliza Struthers-Jobin called curiouslyminded since the end of 2020. We pair program and invite diverse artists to share their genius.

Past community work:

As a designer and developer, I care about:

  • Accessibility
  • CSS methodologies
  • Design systems
  • DRY patterns
  • Emotional design
  • ES6
  • GLSL shaders
  • Graceful degradation
  • IxD
  • Pattern libraries
  • Performance
  • PE
  • RWD
  • Modular architectures
  • Style guides
  • Typography
  • UX & UI
  • WebGL
  • Web standards

I had the opportunity to work with big clients like L'Oreal, Hornbach, Weber, Douglas and Stanford University.

I'm self-taught by nature, continuously learning new topics. I wore different creative hats in the past including transcreation, photography, media production, graphic design, and copywriting. I have a BA in Marketing, passion for creating the unusual and curiosity for technology. My aspiration has been always to combine these skills and experiences to produce memorable outcomes.

What's all about those hands?

I grew up in a school with all kinds of kids, including hearing-impaired ones, up until I was fifteen. We had to learn the sign language alphabet and parts of the language to communicate better with them.

I'm a traveler and have lived in a few countries, so I find it astonishing how sign language crosses barriers that spoken languages don't.
