I am an artist that uses digital mediums for creation, documentation and output of my artwork. Conceptually my work centers around explorations of gender and the unwritten rules of female socio-political identities. Most often I use my body in experiential performances or drawings – what does it feel like for me to act out dominant physical gestures that will provoke passive gestures in some else? I find that my methodology for inhabiting the corporal experience of my subjects allows for a closer look at the true nature of the subject matter – I am courting bathos as a tool to reveal the underpinnings of our cultural interactions.
I use drawing as observational tool. As a residual output of my research I use digital inputs to capture the incidentals and environment around my chosen subject matter. This can manifest itself in several ways, although my main practice is to take my digital drawings and use code to create instructions that final composition of the drawings follow.
In 2008 I graduated from San Francisco State University with an MFA in Conceptual/Information Arts. Since 2008 I have been an Assistant Professor of Electronic Art at Colorado State University.
Cyane has been an artnaut since 2010.
