"Fascia 171208180222" positions the contemporary self as a relational matrix enmeshed in surveillance economies, while contemplating state of equilibrium.
Marija Bozinovska Jones (Macedonia/UK) explores social, computational, and living architectures. Her work addresses the formation of identity in an era of techno-capitalist amplification, probing the self as a datafied and distributed identity through MBJ Wetware. She contemplates mimicry of bio systems through auto-regulation and coping mechanisms – from trends in self-improvement to decentralised blockchain technologies. Her performances and presentations have taken place at Haus der Kulturen der Welt/ Transmediale, CTM, Mutek and Somerset House in London, where she is currently undertaking a studio residency.
