Danielle Roney is an artist working with the hybridization of global identity structures relational to virtual and physical mobility. Working with digital media, immersive environments and interactive media architecture, the artist examines these new spatial relationships through time-base space and non-linear cinematic constructs.

Her project, Global Portals, presented concepts in transnational, networked public spaces at TEDGlobal 2005 in Oxford, England; with subsequent live interactions from Johannesburg, South Africa to Atlanta 2007 during the National Black Arts Festival. Her work has been exhibited extensively including the Beijing Off-Biennale, Convergence, 2005; South x East Biennale 2008; and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center 2006, 2010. Her media project, eGoli premiered as part of her solo exhibition, Genesis Trial: Johannesburg, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Georgia in 2008 and traveled in 2009 to the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago as part of The Edge of Intent exhibition; a centennial celebration of Daniel Burnham's 1909 plan for the city of Chicago. She was the exhibition designer for the U.S. Pavilion, Venice Biennale of Architecture 2010 and is the media advisor for the John Weiland Contemporary Art Collection. Her project Opposing Views is currently on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, in conjunction with the 12th Istanbul Biennale and ISEA Istanbul 2011.

Roney has been supported through numerous grants and awards including Sony Electronics, the Loridans Foundation Arts Achievement Award and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia Working Artist Project Grant. Her work has been reviewed in Art in America, Art and Auction and featured in the top 50 emerging international artists by Contemporary magazine, London. She is a focus in the upcoming publication, Noplaceness: Art in a Post-Urban Landscape. She studied sculpture and digital media at the University of Georgia and has held studios in Los Angeles and Beijing. Roney is currently working with transnational spatial narratives and the migrant human condition through interactive architectural facades for 2012 with her partner, Jeff Conefry. She is also a researcher of Salmon Rushdie's "digital borne archive" at the Manuscript, Archives and Rare Books Library at Emory University.
