Eleonora Roaro

1989 was born in Varese (IT). She lives and works in Milan (IT)

Her practice involves moving images, with a focus on video, archives, and archaeology of cinema. She often revisits ancient devices and iconographies to understand the influence that technologies have on our perception; therefore display and duration are key elements of her video practice. Many projects are on loops, as she considers repetition not only a constitutive element of life but also an important concept in media studies (Manovich 2001). Her current research, based on archives and oral sources, investigates the relationship between architecture and spectatorship in perceiving moving images related to 20th-century cinemas.
