About the artists:
Zeerak Ahmed / SLOWSPIN is a US-based Pakistani artist. She explores notions of identity, memory and longing. Ahmed produces sound sculptures, installations, and uniquely fragile sound collages that hold Eastern Classical vocals and ambient soundscapes. For CUSP ’23, she will be presenting a three-channel sound installation that echoes folk-music traditions from the women of South Asia. Apnay Mahal Ma composes the immaterial space where sonic memories and oral histories reconstitute a home, and a sense of belonging.
Abigail Johnson's work spans many mediums including instrument-making, sound installations, field recording, interactive installations, and experimental performance. Her sound sculptures merge the world of sound installation with fiber art, utilizing found materials to create sculptures which are both graphic score and instrument. Each sculpture in this collection employs various fiber techniques to create unique textures and patterns that bring out the natural sound of each material when manipulated, drawing the audience to activate the piece by touch.

This installation continues Kim Nucci’s research on technological voyeurism, digital surveillance, biodata collection, and the nature of the cybernetic self. This builds on their work with Driven Arts Collective and their multi-year collaborative research project CELSO [Community Emotional Light Sound Organism] which explores personal information security, biodata surveillance, artificial intelligence and optimization culture. Through this work they are interested in exploring self as it is surveilled by our devices and the reclamation/ reappropriation of our own datas for alternative purposes such as art-making.
