In her technological performances and art installations, Marija Bozinovska Jones examines our social acts and systems alongside neural and computational architectures. By blending natural environments with urban utopian techno-ideals, she creates “heterotopian” landscapes for us to collectively inhabit.
Through computer coding, human languages and sound, Bozinovska Jones examines implications of new social and surveillance technologies and how we adapt to them personally and as a society. She explores how identity is subjectively constructed as a matrix in a time of technocapitalism, when trends in self-improvement and decentralized technologies are flourishing. Bozinovska Jones holds an MA in Computational Arts from Goldsmiths University and a BA in Arts and Design at Central Saint Martins. She's collaborated with musicians and producers Iydes (on the 3D Additivist Manifesto), A Guy Called Gerald and Mind:Body:Fitness/Phoebe Kiddo among other artists, and worked with musician and producer J.G. Biberkopf on CTM and Deutschlandradio’s RadioLab award commission, presented at Berghain in Berlin. Bozinovska Jones recently presented and performed at the Hague's Rewire festival, and Amsterdam's Sonic Acts Academy, and has also performed at Transmediale, MIRA and OFcourse at M50 in Shanghai, and installed a piece for Nocturnal City during a residency at Somerset House in London.
In On Selfhood, Bozinovska Jones probes the self as a datafied and distributed identity, occupying a space between the signal and noise of imposed value systems and autonomous decision-making. She's joined by MBJ Wetware, a proxy-like intelligent personal assistant that simulates her voice, and by sound designer and musician J.G. Biberkopf.
Marija Bozinovska-Jones is a resident artist at Somerset House Studios, London.
