Marcela Carvalho is a designer graduated from PUC-RIO, Brazil. She was a terracotta sculptress before starting work in the digital medium in partnership with her husband, Daniel Carvalho. Their first experimental animated short Just Motion was selected for the 2004 Anima Mundi International Animation Festival, and their audiovisual work Out_flow Part I was selected for the Independent Exposure 2007 and for the 2007 Optronica Festival.

She became part of the art collective Altera in 2011, along with Daniel and her oldest son José Santos. Altera works with Dynamic Paintings (video) and Sequential Art (print) in a way that makes them intrinsically connected. They are currently developing a project on water dynamics. The Water project has generated so far three audiovisual works: Refluir, Outflow and Rheotaxis. Each work brings focus to different aspects of water dynamics and has already been selected for screening in international exhibitions.
