Mayte Gomez-Molina

Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Film, Video, New Media, and Animation

Mayte Gomez-Molina (Madrid, 1993) is a Spanish writer and video artist currently based in Chiclana de la Frontera (Cádiz, Spain). In 2019, she received a Fulbright scholarship that allowed her to study a MFA at SAIC, where she discovered 3D and VR, which now are at the core of her artistic practice. Through these disciplines, she keeps exploring the concept of the political body, aiming to create digital environments that act as a shelter for both viewer and narrator, where personal stories can be made political through a safe space for sharing. Her pieces also attempt to create a calm, meditative environment where people find time to rest and engage in critical thinking, both neglected actions in the fast-paced, speed-demanding world we live in.

She is currently finishing her first 3D short film and working on a multimedia documentary about her mother, Mayte Molina Romero.
