Joëlle (b. 1982) is a South African audiovisual artist and designer whose work is focused on exploring the connection between sound and form.

Her approach is highly experimental, producing an output that is often unexpected and unknown at the start. She works primarily in the field of realtime visuals and live performance, using audio to drive motion, resulting in forms that are largely sculpted by sound. Using frequencies and minimal structures she embraces the imperfections that emerge from her process as she tries to capture the atmosphere and emotions that she feels in the moment.

Commissions and collaborations include MIRA Festival (Barcelona) alongside Andy Stott, Re-Textured Festival with SPEKTRA (London), Field Maneuvers (London), OFFF Mexico City with Aldo Aréchar, OFFF Barcelona with Joshua Davis and OFFF Vienna. She’s collaborated with Killawatt, Counterstrike and Ancestral Voices on a number of audiovisual projects. Her work has been exhibited at Digital Decade (London), Elixir Poetry Festival (Terrassa), Athens Digital Arts Festival and Sónar Hong Kong.

She has a residency as a visual artist at FOLD in London and speaks regularly at design festivals where she shares insights into her tools and process.

Joëlle also works as a product designer, creating elegant and usable experiences while exploring how humans interact with technology.

She lives and works in London, UK.
