N. Adriana Knouf is a media scholar and artist who lives in the liminal spaces between signal and noise. Her current research project is titled "At the Limits of Communication" and explores how we are searching for signals from extraterrestrial entities. Knouf considers the digital and analog worlds fundamentally intertwined and uses a variety of media in her work such as handmade paper, radio, digital signal processing, augmented reality, and generative poetry. She aims to bring people into closer relationships between themselves on this earth and the entities out there in the cosmos.
