Objectora was created by visual and performance artist Sònia Gardés, who has more than ten years of experience in the arts and performance sector.
Her career started in the field of make up, working for DDT sfx in the films Agora, by Alejandro Amenábar (2009) and Broken Embraces, by Pedro Almodóvar (2009).

Sònia moved to Scotland in 2015, where she started her career as a storyteller, puppeteer and performer as well as puppet and costume designer and maker. Since then, she has worked, been commissioned and collaborated with artists and companies like the National Theatre of Qatar, the National Theatre of Scotland, Puppet Animation Scotland, Edinburgh Children’s Festival, Vision Mechanics, Gavin Glover, Theatre Gu Leòr, Cutting Edge, the Amsterdam Storytelling Festival and the Federation for European Storytelling, amongst others.
