Nadine Lessio

Selected Projects


Nadine Lessio is a new media artist and researcher based out of Ontario, Canada. Their practice is an ongoing exploration into how technical ecosystems can be used for creative work, while utilizing concepts around game peripherals, the internet of things, and bots. Sometimes their projects use code or software, sometimes they are made using their hands, often it is a combination of these things. Nadine thinks a lot about why and how we make things and where those activities overlap. They really enjoy proof of concept work and prototyping, and are comfortable writing code, doing research, and tending to shared resources. They like working autonomously, and are currently looking for remote-first opportunities where their unique background of media arts, design, and academic research can be utilized.

Nadine has been a speaker at many industry conferences, and their work has been shown at events like IndieCade, Vector, neurIPS, and ISEA.

When not at a computer you can find them exploring the woods, watching birds, or reading books about sad robots.

Nadine holds an undergraduate diploma in Graphic Design, and an MDes in Digital Futures from OCAD University.
