Omschrijving werk

Sissel Marie Tonn:" With a background in Film, Media and Cultural studies, my practice-based research often revolves around questions of how ecologies of digital media interact with human bodies, how they define and re-define our sense of self and other, and how the infrastructures of ubiquitous technologies and interfaces can be reconfigured into instances of sensation, embodiment and lived experience through artistic interventions and subversions in the digital environment. Technology has always brought on changes to how we communicate. As the as the distance between the communicating subjects increase there is a technological advancement towards “presence effects” – real time video, on-location updates, real-time efficiency. In my work I seek the gestures and means available for maintaining an awareness of these changed relationships – within the infrastructures of existing technologies. What does it mean to sense the presence of another person when they are encountered through layers of digitization? And what are the premises for “capturing” this sense of presence as a trace in the digital realm – just as analogue photography was once believed to do? I explore these changed conditions and complexities of embodiment, matter and human interaction, within the broad spectrum of digital mediation. Another theme that is reoccuring in my practice is work - inspired by Bruce Nauman, what is the work of an artist? How can I translate this reflectivity to the (micro- and macro) politics of work outside the realm of art, how technologies of work transgresses into our private lives, and how our identities are bound up on our work?I seek to weave together an ecology of interdisciplinary approaches, of different media, means of expressions, of researching and writing, in order to map out universes of enunciation and sensation. This way I aim to investigate the aspects of the everyday that often fall under the radar of the dominating discourse of the given field of interest".
