Isa Ghaffari is a 2D/3D animator, compositor, and VR artist whose work delves into storytelling through the fusion of abstract and narrative lenses. As a queer artist and developer, Isa is passionate about breaking down the historically cis/hetero/male-dominated creative tech industries by utilizing her craft to build a foundation for inclusivity and boundary-pushing storytelling.

Carol Civre, Isa Ghaffari and Leah Roh are the co-founders of Motherlode, a female-run digital art lab emphasizing inclusivity and aesthetics through interactive design. Motherlode is currently developing Pillow Talk — an immersive, computer-generated virtual reality experience exploring topics that are systematically excluded from traditional sex education curriculum. Conventional sex education underrepresents the spectrum of sexuality and what is lacking often leads to misinformation from alternative sources. The topics that Pillow Talk will cover are the spectrum of sexuality and its complex relationship to identity, communication and consent in and out of the bedroom, and self-discovery through sex toys and masturbation.
