Letta Shtohryn (UA / EU) works with XR, CGI, VR, machinima and video games. Her academic background is in philosophy and photography. Letta is a PhD candidate in Digital Arts. Currently she is based at Ars Electronica's Founding Lab in Linz, Austria, where she explores embodiment, myth-making, and belief via XR.
