New media technologies became an important aspect of my work in 2006 when I was commissioned to create the visuals for an interactive music performance. The project prompted me to learn both physical computing and MAX/MSP/Jitter. I became interested in aspects of interactivity both as a physical experience and as a cultural concept.
Questions of power and the role of technology in reinforcing power relations in the public sphere became increasingly important to my practice. I began to use new media technologies to explore how agency, control, independence, and automation are enacted and reified through 21st century modes of communication. Staying consistent with my performance and video art work, the physical body and the performance of “self” remain a central theme throughout.
