Klimentina Li’s primary focus lies on interaction; her work ranges from play strategies and stage-based concepts to audio-visual compositions. Throughout her narratives, she observes alternative approaches to immersive experiences.

She finds herself researching on the command grounds between those fields while questioning the already known. Her background in media art and pedagogy inspires her to find ways to communicate digital concepts in a playful manner. She was part of the core team of major European media and digital art festivals. Such as CIVA Festival 2022-2023, Digitale Welten 2022, and Ars Electronica 2017-2019.

After finishing her B.A. in Stage and Costume Design and B.A. in Art Education at the National Academy of Art in Sofia, Klimentina externalized her skills via media and interaction. She completed her master’s degree in the Interface Cultures department at Kunstuniversität Linz. Currently, she is pursuing her second M. A. in Experimental Game Cultures at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
