Juliacks is the writer and creator of Architecture of an Atom (2d Cloud, 2017). This graphic novel was developed and completed at the residencies Martha Street Studios (Winnipeg,) Entreprise Culturelle (Paris,) BHQFU (New York City), and De Ateliers (Amsterdam) and in New Jersey. From 2010–2016, Juliacks co-created this nonlinear, transmedia narrative. Working with artistic communities and groups of Lyon, Stockholm, Gotland, Helsinki, Rome, Winnipeg, New York, Copenhagen, and Malmö, she devised a searching, functional, method-based system to create a series of abstract fictional and site-specific films. These works have exhibited, screened, and performed at museums (MoMA PS1, Moderna, MAC-Lyon, Centre-Geneva, Kiasma), galleries (Silberkuppe, Essex Flowers, Salon de Montrouge), film and comics festivals (Cineglobe, Zinebi, Crack, Antimatter, Cine-Rebis), and alternative art spaces (Néon, Atomic Centre, GrrrndZero) in North America and Europe. Fiction, and its layered construction, is the basis of Juliacks’s work, which takes the form of books, films, theater, performance, installations, paintings, tapestries, and comics. Her current project, Transversal Scepters | The Antecedents, crosses time by using criminal archives and technologies from the 17th and 21st century in the Netherlands and North America as touchstones to hallucinate alternative futures. This project has been awarded with a research development grant from the Mondriaan Fonds. Juliacks is a recipient of the Fulbright Fellowship, and the ENSBA-Lyon, Néon, LA BOX, De Ateliers residencies and grants.
