Calembour is a New Media Art project founded in Milan in 2014 by a female duo - Giorgia Petri and Laura Migliano - while studying New Technologies at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. The project focuses on the relationship between identity, technology and science. Their works were exhibited, among the other, at Milan Triennale, at South Seaport Museum (New York City), at "Leonardo Da Vinci" Museum of Science and Technology (Milan), at Massimo Cerasi Gallery (Milan), at Paillard Center d’Art (Poncè Sur Le Loir, France), at CICA Museum (South Korea), at Musee Oceanographique (Monaco), at Palais of Art (Cairo, Egypt), at Yarat Contemporary Art Space (Azerbaijan), at Inter Arts Center (Malmö). They currently live and work in Berlin.

Our academic backgrounds are different yet complementary: we come from different horizons of study, one humanistic and one scientific, which then met and integrated in the field of art. This aspect is central to the method, the imagery of reference and the formalization of ideas, in all our works. Technology is the language we use to investigate the contemporary, through a sort of post-production of reality. Currently, the developments in the field of artificial intelligence and wearable technologies are those that arouse the greatest interest in us. The aim is not the technology itself, but the way in which it changes the public and private sphere of human beings and their relationship with the environment.
Our artistic research is placed in the intersection between new technologies, science and the human being, where issues related to human studies and the biosphere emerge. Our references concern the post-human, both in a symbolic and aesthetic key. The interdisciplinary approach allows us to investigate issues related to gender, identity, sexuality, ecology and physics, through a postmedia perspective. Our interest focuses on the relationship between the human being and his semiosphere, in relation to the continuous mutation of objects - and hyperobjects - that form (and transform) the umwelt in which the contemporary human being is immersed. This concerns especially the medial mutations that augment the human body and mind, modifying the perceptual sphere and subjectivity.
