Gabriella Torres-Ferrer (b.1987 Arecibo, Puerto Rico) is a multimedia artist and researcher. Torres Ferrer’s new media practice considers futurability, new digital epistemologies, and subverts hegemonic narratives; power dynamics and means of exchange in a globalized networked society.

The ongoing series Mine Your Own Business critiques the current digital environment and explore the dynamics of appropriation and commodification of personal data that surrounds our daily life. Found everyday objects are implanted with microcomputers displaying information related to targeted ads.
