Marija Bozinovska Jones will elaborate her practice under the pseudonym MBJ Wetware and her approach of live performance as constructing virtual environments extending beyond spatial and audiovisual.
She will be covering the conception of GAD Technologies, work commissioned for Club Transmediale 2016 and premiered at Berghain as a collaboration with J G Biberkopf. MBJ will be also presenting her recent work employing voice controlled lasers.
Marija Bozinovska Jones’ work revolves around identity formation in an era of technocapitalist amplification and perpetual online presence. She explores socio-political implications of planetary scale computation, seeking out apophenic patterns with an array of elements ranging from subcultural formations to totalitarian architecture. Jones explores society’s anthropological adaptations intertwined in the framework of networked capitalism, its coping mechanism of coming to terms with challenged ontological axioms of cognition, affection and memory. Under the alias MBJ Wetware, Jones develops immersive live performances simulating heterotopian landscapes.
