BIO
Amy Alexander is a new media, audiovisual and performance artist who has also worked in film, video, music and information technology. Her current and recent work approaches digital media art from a performing arts perspective, often sitting at the intersection of art and popular culture. Amy’s projects have been presented on the Internet, in clubs and on the street as well as in festivals and museums. She is an Associate Professor of Visual Arts at the University of California, San Diego. In summer and fall 2012, she'll be Artist-in-Residence at iotaCenter in Los Angeles.

Amy – who has also worked under the names Cue P. Doll and VJ Übergeek – was a dinos^H^H^H pioneer in the development of software-based net art, beginning in 1996 with the Webby-nominated Multi-Cultural Recycler, a project that spoofed both net celebrity and faux multi-culturalism on the web. In addition to her art projects, she was also a co-founder and moderator of the Runme.org software art repository and has been active in software art curation.

Amy’s projects have been exhibited at venues ranging from The Whitney Museum, Prix Ars Electronica, Transmediale, SIGGRAPH, and the New Museum to club performances at Sonar (Barcelona), First Avenue (Minneapolis) and Melkweg (Amsterdam). She has performed on the streets of Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, Zürich, and Aberdeen, Scotland. Her work has been discussed in publications including Wired, The New York Times, Slashdot, Ecrans, Leonardo, The Boston Globe and the Washingon Post.

Amy’s work has been influenced by her background in musical performance, and she’s recently expanded her performance endeavors by studying and performing standup comedy. Besides continuing her VJ performances, she’s recently published texts on audiovisual performance history. In collaboration with Annina Rüst and composer Cristyn Magnus, she created Discotrope, an audiovisual performance involving solar energy and various histories of dance in cinema. She is currently working on a research and performance project that combines performative cinema with various forms of percussion gestures.
