Ivana Dama was born and raised under the socialist regime in Belgrade shortly after the end of the civil war and during the time of NATO bombing. The tension between the former Yugoslavian countries was still undoubtedly present. Even though she was only a young child when the bombing began, images and sounds of the destruction still clearly permeate her mind. The memories of living in a small shelter with the sounds and vibrations of the air raid sirens have contributed to her interest in using air and sound as a primary medium. Her work, which includes audio-video installations, robotics, web projects, and music performances, explores the deep connections between sound, memory, and human experience. Currently pursuing a graduate degree in Sculpture at Yale University, Ivana holds a previous degree in Media Arts and Digital Humanities from UCLA's School of Arts and Architecture. Her work explores the different realms of space encompassing the microscopic, architectural, and satellite scale. Through various experiments she explores how sounds behave in different environments such as vacuum, water, and outer space. Ivana has participated in over 30 group shows and had solo exhibitions in Portland and Los Angeles.
