Nancy Mauro-Flude [1975 - *]
performing art | experimental media.
Nancy's work is poetically influenced by the electronic activist movement, political cabaret and the experiential worlds they carry in their wake. She foregrounds the paraphernalia that constracts the relationship between the social and technical, the material and immaterial.
In 2008 she fullfilled a long term plan to return to be based Tasmania. She is a sessional lecturer and PhD candidate at the School of Art, University of Tasmania. In her research she explores how new information systems, including the Internet, are having a fundamental impact on social, political and cultural processes. Recent MA graduate from the research center of the Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam University, in 2007 she was Honorary Researcher at the School for Electronic Media, Slade School of Fine Art [UCL] and artist-in-residence at MuseumsQuartier (Vienna).
She is also a founding member of Moddr_electronic tools lab @WORM Rotterdam, and developer of /etc Eclectic Tech Carnival, international women's hack lab [home brewed since 2002].
'Nancy's work is a generative collision of net technology, riot grrl, dance, open source programming, vaudeville and the concerns of the psyche, her work weaves together transcendent practices of many kinds while feeding from the rot and beauty of contemporary daily life'.
