Nancy Mauro-Flude is an art-punk provocateur: a writer, producer, curator, interdisciplinary artist and prolific performer. Her work explores how we articulate the resonances and dissonances between performing arts and computer science, within the context of the contemporary art. Driven by the demystification of technology, and the ‘mystification’ that lie in and through the performance of the machinic assemblage. Gray magics, hijackings, driftings and seizures of power are many of the sensitive and subversive subterfuges by which the artist urges, twist and explores the esthetic politic of the open source spirit. The artists attempt to grapple with practices and talismanic logics of island cultures does much to prick the art world with a potent needle.
