Research Focus

The study of synaesthesia, regarding film, allows us to enquire the moving image beyond its technical artifices: not only are we able to explore the sensorial interaction between sound and image, but also the impact of visual perception and of a collective audio-visual repertoire on the transit of cultural references.

Through this current research project, Andréa expects to value the synesthetic phenomena and the experimental moving image as a document capable of reflecting on its «meaning», the concept of image, the relevance of visual literacy and the artistic and technological borders within the medium. By doing so, she aims at producing new contributions to the study and understanding of visual culture and film theory, all the while casting a new gaze upon the Irish experimental cinema and its relations with external realities.

Andréa M. Diogo holds a MA in Art History, Heritage and Visual Culture (2018) and a BA in Art History (2017) from the Faculty of Arts of the University of Porto, Portugal. Her MA dissertation titled Sound and Vision: a videografia de David Bowie (1969-2017). Contributos para o estudo do videoclipe, which outlines the music video as a contemporary phenomenon, allowed her to examine the relationship between sound and image, as well as the notion of haptic movement and how, nowadays, the dissemination of the medium is itself a document that delineates its own artistic and technological possibilities.
In 2019, under an ERASMUS+ programme, she was an intern at the Irish Film Archive, in Dublin, where she acquired knowledge and experience in film preservation and cataloguing systems.
Although her research interests focus mainly on Art History, Visual Culture, Moving Image and New Media, she has also produced scientific work within the scope of Heritage Studies, such as the two digital exhibitions, accessible on the Google Arts & Culture platform: Tradição Sineira [Bell Traditions] (2016) and Porto de Virtudes (2017). Throughout her BA and MA degrees, she was a member of the Organizing Committee of "Semana da História da Arte" [Art History Week] (2009-2019) and "Encontros de Fotografia/FLUP" [Encounters with Photography/FLUP] (2014-2019), promoted by the Department of Heritage Studies (DCTP/U.Porto). She was also a member of the Editorial Board and an Editorial Assistant for REVELAR: Journal of Photography and Image Studies (ISSN 1777-5302).
