Erika O. Hannes is a multi-disciplinary artist and engineer born in Mexico City, Mexico, living in San Francisco, California. She has produced extensive site specific installations, sculptures and dioramas, which include sensors and electromechanical devices. Currently, she is exploring e-textiles and micro computers, and applying this technology to soft sculptures and focusing on the body as an installation site.

Her pieces can be set individually, grouped into installations, used in performances, or worn on the body. Additionally, she continues to apply her technical and creative concepts to functional art, costuming, performance, and collaborating with artists.
