Claudia Giralt Monedero (website) − Claudia is an artist and designer, also known as A cAt. She has studied graphic design in Spain, Digital Media Design in England, and is currently attending a master, Experimental Publishing, at Piet Zwart, Rotterdam, while working as an intern at PublishingLab. Apart from working as a graphic designer, the areas she explores are glitch, the subjectivity of reality, and the mere meaning of life. Glitch is approached as a mean to transmit other concepts. When it comes to the subjectivity of reality, she tries to go out of social constructed paradigms, questioning the main structures of believes on which society is build. Other projects tackle the meaning of existence, trying to make sense of life itself. Apart from external research, her approach is self-reflexive and self-explorative, with the idea that all answers can be found in oneself.
