Darja Shatalova is a multidisciplinary artist focusing on the structuralisation and systematisation of data, describing current events of her environment and the personal microcosm.

In a continuous notation process, she creates multi-layered, coded expressions composed of symbols, mathematical signs, colour codes and assignments, serving the purpose of analysis and pattern recognition.

The data, collected in the form of graphical records in artist's books, is translated into space-based installations, long-term performances and sound compositions. Whereby, the transformative process constitutes a central element of the working method.
