TALK: all around me are familiar faces
“The awareness of the self is most significantly activated at the moment of disturbance of balance, in situations of perplexity and disorientation”
- Ksenia Fedorova, Mechanism of Augmentation in Proprioceptive Media Art
On selected works, Martina Menegon introduces her artistic practice and methodology focusing on avatars as perceivable entities and how to establish an artistic dialogue between the physical and the virtual selves. Through multimedia, interactive, virtual and augmented reality art installations, Menegon uses digital media to re- materialise the body after it has been transferred into a virtual state, creating an intimate and complex assemblage of physical and virtual elements that explore the contemporary self and its synthetic corporeality.
