Beatrice Douaihy is a digital creative examining how virtual (im)materiality shapes our existence by using lo-fi technology, glitch, and the written word to extract metaphor from the structuralism of digital interfaces. She seeks to make palpable the subliminal relationships and synchronicities embedded in digital-analogue interaction. 

 Also a musician, she supports fellow artists in the Toronto rock scene through music composition and visual arts; credits include Pretty, The Effens, Joncro, Huge Cosmic, the Boy in Bloom (2019) soundtrack, Witchxhat and Animal Type. Her gothic doomgaze musical project Uncaught (in promise) released its debut EP in 2020.
