Hi! My name is Melanie hoff and you've arrived at my website. I hope the journey was smooth and whatever brought you here was a source whose judgement you trust. I'd like to share something of myself and my recent thoughts. Please, don't hesitate to tell me you disagree with every word, with every fibre of your being. My work rests on the premise that using the same tools that increasingly moderate and control society for artistic expression is an agile, political act. As artists, it's important not just to use these tools for our own agendas, but in doing so, to really understand how they operate on us and then share that knowledge. The relations between society and technology is a material reality that we need to be able to recognize before we can dismantle. The ability to read webs of power should not rest solely in the hands of those who spin them.,, My practice also investigates identity, visibility, and the ways in which representation actively shape our interactions and consciousness. None of us can claim to see everything in the situations we are in, and even what we see may not coincide with reality. Our perceptions are shaped by frames that hide some things and amplify others. Thank you for listening. smiley face. smiley face. heart.,,,,,
