Amy is an Associate Professor of Visual Arts at University of California San Diego. She writes software; repurposes hardware; performs live visuals; makes installations; speaks; writes; eats and breathes. Her current research and practice focuses on changing definitions of moving images in the YouTube era and computing anthropology with a focus on histories of women as technology-based makers.
Latest big project: PIGS: Percussive Image Gestural System
Things Amy’s been teaching lately:
Contemporary expanded cinema; Visual performance history and practice; abstract cinema history; history and practice of process-based digital media art.
Amy also continues to occasionally perform CyberSpaceLand (2003 – present). She enjoys awkwardly and obliquely addressing gender politics whenever possible and in her leisure time tries to play drums better than that.
