Jacqueline George

Jacqueline George (1988) is a sound and visual artist, living and working in Cairo, Egypt. In 2010 she graduated from Faculty of Art Education with a masters degree in “Digital Games as an Art Medium”. She is interested in field recordings, creative coding and human sounds, looking for creative potential inside Cairo's noise, besides writing texts for vocals. She is fascinated by the ability of sound to carry ideas and draw mental images. In her work she experiments with special environments, using performance and visual elements, contemporary dance and videos. She also designs digital games as art works and composes music for them. Her works are based on mind maps and brainstorming results that revolve around self-image, universe and the body, time and invisible reality. She works as a teacher and a moderator in the programmes for developing children skills through creative thinking and teamwork.

Presentations of her work and Performances were shown at: SPOR Festival, Aarhus; Free! Music – Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Borealis Festival, Bergen; Cafe OTO, London; Plattfon, Basel; Reithalle, Bern; Bad Bonn, Dudingen; The Palace, St. Gallen; Musique Action, Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy; Inspire art space, Bahrain ; D-CAF.
