Oana Clitan

Oana Clitan is an artist and designer.

Oana Clitan is an artist and designer who explores how language and contemporary communication are influenced by technology and media. In her multidisciplinary practice she likes to remix and recontextualize existing materials, such as contemporary visuals found on the internet and old archival materials. Her works range from digitally printed textiles to animated GIF collages and multiscreen installations. In her latest projects she addresses themes such as propaganda and the rhetoric of technology, the post-truth society, and the expression of online identity through the building of various narratives and dystopian scenarios. One persistent point of interest is the transition from communicating with text to communicating with images in online conversations and the use of animated GIFs as rhetorical devices.

Born in Romania, she is currently based in Rotterdam, NL.
