About me

Spherical aberration is the AV project of Ioana Bilea , an environmental scientist/artist from Transylvania, currently based in Berlin. After spending a bit part off her life in lush forests and organic sounds, she decided to bring these audio visual stimulants to live with real-time generative visuals techniques that flow and transform under your eyes creating an enrapturing flowing world that merges with the surrounding sounds.

Ioana spend a long time creating 3D landscape maps studying terrain, vegetation and pollution but then decided to apply all she learned in a more creative and generative way, creating awareness about the organic world through intricate digital works.

Musically, she creates ambient textural layers to blend with the flowing visual world.

Ioana collaborated with many interesting music artists such as Varg, Kris Vango, Laomo Sik, and performed in many international events such as Atonal, Sonar Reykjavik, Roskilde, Room4Resistance, Ableton Loop.

Spherical Aberration =  is an optical effect observed in an optical device (lens,mirror, etc.) that occurs due to the increased refraction of light rays when they strike a lens or a reflection of light rays when they strike a mirror near its edge, in comparison with those that strike nearer the center. It signifies a deviation of the device from the norm, i.e., it results in an imperfection of the produced image.
