Melissa Ramos works with time base mediums, exploring the intrinsic essence of time and movement. Her artistic practice derives from examining the conflicts between nature and culture, in particular the issues of nature imparted by colonialism & modernity.
Melissa's ultimate inspiration is to challenge new modes of moving images and become an ambassador for the category in Australia, focussing on inspiring others to explore the boundless manifestations of the moving image.
Melissa’s work has been exhibited widely; among them include ISEA, USA. The 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art Kanazawa; Japan. Copenhagen, Denmark, House of Dance Denmark. Vargas Museum, Manila, Philippines. Berlin Asian Film Festival, Haus der Kulturen der Welt Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin, Germany.
