About

Jemma Woolmore aka Jem the Misfit is a Berlin based video artist.  

Merging digital content with handmade sculptural objects Jemma blurs the boundaries between real and virtual, exploring abstract textural landscapes that fluctuate ambiguously in scale between the micro and macro.
Her work spans Audio-Visual performance, video installation and bespoke visual design. Processes of light refraction, crystallisation and liquid phase changes, combine with quotidian materials, transforming into fantastical environments.

Jemma’s recent collaborations include the Nonagon AV show with musician Paula Temple, Artist in Residence at Les Dominicains with Andre Uhl, video mapping installation ‘Sound Affects’ at Sonos Studio LA with PATTERNS Architects and musician Jon Bernson and the live AV show with french artist Abstraxion.

Her work has been shown internationally including at:
Mapping festival (CH), MIRA (ES), Convergence festival (UK), Sonos Studio (USA), Berlin’s Krake festival and Mutek Mexico.
