Rossio Motta-­Ochoa

Rossio Motta-­Ochoa, PhD, completed her doctorate in cultural anthropology at the University of California, Davis. Her fields of specialization are science and technology studies, medical anthropology and, more recently, person-centered anthropology. She is particularly interested in the interfaces between technology and alleged mental health problems as well as the ethical questions that they pose. As part of her past research, she studied the practice of Carlo Franco Stella Atencio, a Peruvian artist who lives with schizophrenia. During two years, they meet weekly as Carlo shared his drawings and notebooks while relating his views of the world. This experience was the foundation for the exhibition Visible Cities
