Anna Nazo is a London-based performance artist whose practice engages computing technologies, philosophy and science. Her current focus is on AI poetry, drones, brainwave CGI and 360-degree imaging. Within live digital-analogue audiovisual performance Anna’s work investigates questions of intelligence diversity and ethics of the technological. It looks at artificial forms of intelligence and liveness in relation to nonconscious cognition (Hayles), quantum reality and distributed forms of sensuousness. It proposes a radically different perspective on the digital, which brings in symbiotic and sympoietic (Haraway) relationships with technology.
