Maria del Carmen Montoya is a new media artist who works in sculpture, performance, and video. Her work explores the personal, emotional and utterly irrational tendencies of technology.  Her collaborative projects include WineBloodBloodLove, a performance and sound installation inside the Herman Nitsch retrospective at the Station Museum in Houston, TX and the creation of The Digital Poplar Consort, a family of handcrafted wireless musical instruments with which is used in a concert performance.  Her most recent work I Sky You, winner of a 2009 Rhizome Commission, is an installation that sonifies the radiance of chemically synthesized light. It is inspired by the phrase Frida Kahlo used to describe infinite love: “I Sky You.”
