Her current work Unlooping Film | Cinema sem Volta 2014 is an endless
slideshow fed with Instagram pictures produced by conflicting groups,
which use the same hashtags. It performs a battle of language between
the multitude and the masses.
BEIGUELMANs interventions in public spaces, networked projects and
mobile art applications are often characterized by a strong
interactivity and incorporation of spectators. Multi-user applications
invite to participate in the art work by using mobile devices and
sharing music, texts and pictures.
She is also a pioneer in digital poetry, one of her most famous works
is The book after the book 1999, a hypertextual and visual essay that
states at the end of the page: The Internet is no more than a big text.
On the front, at the screen, text reveals itself as image.

community features and user-oriented applications to enable a collective
scientific exchange between artists, researchers, engineers and the
public to foster interdisciplinary and global collaborative analysis and
a proactive process of knowledge transfer.
To ensure a high academic standard, five published articles and/or
curated exhibitions are required to become a member of the ADA
