Alona Rodeh is a visual artist and independent researcher based in Berlin. Her cross-disciplinary work includes creating immersive environments that combine movement through light and sound, public art projects, sculpture, video works, publishing, and more. Fueled by an interest in the qualities of material and technology cultures that shape our visual and sonic urban environment, her ongoing meta-titled SAFE AND SOUND (2014-) project explores histories and futures of off-the-shelf reflective, phosphorus, and illumination technologies.
