Nicolás Kisic Aguirre

Architect and sound artist.

Nicolás Kisic Aguirre is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in Art, Culture and Technology at MIT. He holds a professional degree in architecture obtained in Lima from PUCP university, and has previously followed studies in Economics, Environmental Studies, and Digital Fabrication.

Nicolas is presently focused in researching the potential of sound as it is relevant to different notions of public space.

Within this practice, he is invested in the production of work that aims to explore, understand and activate public space through sound and sonic artifacts.
His work has been presented in the Ars Electronica Festival, the Dutch Design Week, the MIT museum and the Good Design gallery. His work is prepared to occupy public space in situations such as performances, protests, celebrations and explorations that ultimately test the boundaries of our common understanding of the city and the spaces we share in it.

He will be speaking as part of Design Indaba Conference 2018's Global Grads. Book your conference ticket.
