Luba Diduch is an installation artist and academic working with Human Computer Interaction artworks. Her research examines the ways in which architectonic schemes that surround artworks become a mechanism for expanding these artworks beyond their immediate structures. It focuses on how audiences and collaborators who engage with these architectonic schemes ‘look away’ from exhibited interactive artworks even as they jointly participate in expanding them through their own creative activities. An atmosphere of reciprocity within a polyphonic plurality of participant voices and viewpoints is created and is comprised of a system of networks that are inhabited by the participants. The artwork becomes an expanding space where the polyphonic voices of participants resonate within it.
Fay Stevens is an academic, curator, artist and writer. Her archaeological work, performance and art practice is a process of excavation; an unravelling of layers of time, memory and substance. It is a phenomenological enquiry and experience, concerned with trace, elements, the senses, inscription and corporeal interplay.
