Amalia Lindo is an emerging video and installation-based artist, whose work explores the languages and subcultures that have emerged in an age of ubiquitous computation. Overlaying and reframing found and filmed footage, Lindo questions the effect of internet culture on our collective understanding of social relations, perception and representation.
For Computer shoulders, Lindo presents 3 new video installations, exploring the way integrated automation within digital platforms has reorganised, layered and cultivated individual behaviours to predict and influence our future decisions.
The exhibited video works are produced collaboratively with an algorithm developed by Lindo, wherein user-generated content is targeted using keywords, geographical locations and visual characteristics, that direct the outcomes of the work.
Through Computer shoulders, Lindo examines how contemporary production captures and quantifies individuals to evoke specific cognitive responses, and the way bodies (both human and nonhuman) are being increasingly hybridised between digital and physical spaces.
This project has been supported by an Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Scholarship.
