Amaia Vicente

Amaia Vicente está actualmente desarrollando una investigación  doctoral en el departamento de arte y tecnología de la Universidad del País Vasco, y en “Interface Cultures”, en la Universidad de Arte de Linz, Austria. Desde el Laboratorio de Investigación Artística (“Interfaz e interacción como canalizadores sociales del cuerpo”), Amaia está específicamente interesada en el potencial performativo del cuerpo a través de la interacción con la tecnología y su representación bio-política dentro de la cultura, así como la interacción y comunicación entre esos cuerpos en nuestros medios tecnológicos.

Ella cuenta con un Máster en Arte Contemporáneo, Tecnológico y Performativo (2014-2016) en la UPV-EHU y un Máster en Investigación sobre el Feminismo y Estudios de Género (2008 – 2010).

En 2017 Amaia obtuvo una beca para una residencia; “La Muda de la Piel”, curado por Txema Aguiriano (ES), Enrique Tomás, Linz, Austria (AT), y una exhibición con “Trans_mutatations” en AFO, Foro de Arquitectura de Alta Austria, Linz (AT). El mismo año fue elegida para “Kaleartean, Festival de arte efímero”, con “Tra_n_s_fronterizo”, Basauri, Basque Country (ES); estuvo en el “Bilbao Art District” y en “Día a Día”, Bilbao, Basque Country (ES), en “FABRA I COATS.

The Interface Body in Interactive Artistic Installations

The traditional approach towards visual perception in the post-industrial and cyber culture, a referent of our information era, is to go inside our body and mind, in the real world, and change them. From my work in my Artistic Research I am interested specifically in the interface body action and its meaning and representation inside its culture, just like the interaction and communication between the bodies. The main objective of my works is to investigate the interactive and technological environments with the human body and its identity. I attempt to deconstruct a series of questions and reflexions that relate to the body and its symbol, subject and image, organism and identity, reality-unreality.

Since 2010 my works include sound and video as new materials to produce pieces. It’s here that I developed an interest in audio, associated with the pursuit of this idea of the deconstruction of the body and its symbolic representation, and bringing new questions into the work. This has also led me to understand the body as performative entity, an interface, generator, detonator, in a context of absolute media globalization. In this sense my work seeks to cause physical responses in the people who interact with the pieces through various technological devices related to sound and video. In this search I attempt to strip the sign-body, to alter it, to transform or destroy it to create new semiotic languages while interacting with the viewers through their senses.
