Brazilian-born multimedia artist Josely Carvalho lives and works in New York City and Rio de Janeiro. Her works range from paintings, sculptures and book art to printmaking, video and sound installations and most recently the Internet. Her installations incorporate varied technology in the construction of both digital and physical environments, while her provocative web concept, Book of Roofs (http://www.book-of-roofs.net), weaves sound, text, and images into interactive virtual perspectives on "shelter."
