Mimi Onuoha at Element AI, part of Feminist and Accessible Publishing/Communications Technologies Series


6650 St-Urbain, Montreal, Quebec H2S 3G9

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/2024844574485146/ 

Mimi Onuoha will speak about her work on missing data sets. She will discuss the role of her artistic practice when thinking about tech and data sets. Her work challenges us to consider how metrified societies require the fluid, organic, messiness of people to be secured, tagged, categorized, and abstracted.

Mimi Onuoha is a Nigerian-American, Brooklyn-based new media artist and researcher whose work deals with the missing and obscured remnants forged from a society based on automation. Through layerings of code, text, interventions, and objects, she seeks to explore the ways in which people are abstracted, represented, and classified.
