  • Overview

    Raquel’s areas of interest include commercial and video art, kinetic typography, graphic design, video integration in performance, motion graphics and instructional multimedia development. Her work often focuses on integrating computer animation and motion design with different traditional art forms by collaborating with artists of diverse backgrounds such as printmaking, painting, installation art, poetry, puppetry, theater, and musical performance. She finds that the combination of her digital medium with physical visual media can be a powerful way to communicate social issues. Her experimental animation work and her collaborative performance pieces have been featured at festivals and on stages across the country. Prior to joining Duke, Salvatella de Prada was Creative Director at HG Media, a multimedia design company in Princeton, NJ, and also worked in Madrid and London. She studied Music Education at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Computer Arts at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid and the School of Visual Arts in New York, and Computer Arts & New Media at Academy of Arts University located in San Francisco.
