Erin Gee

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Articulating feminist-materialist strategies for creation with digital tools, Canadian artist Erin Gee uses human voices in electronic bodies as metaphor for artistic creation. Her work in neural networks, biosignal-driven choral composition, virtual reality, sound sculpture, networked music performance and robotics has been shown at venues such as MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina, 2020), Toronto Biennale (2019), Elektra Festival (Montréal, 2019), FILE festival (São Paulo, 2019), Cluster Festival (Winnipeg, 2019) and Ars Electronica (Linz, 2018). Gee earned an MFA in Visual Arts from Concordia University in 2014 and in 2020 began studying in the Doctorate of Music (Création et Composition Sonore) programme at Université de Montréal with Nicolas Bernier. Gee is best known for her artistic experiments with human biodata collection and affective interfaces, responsive fields that she probes in order to facilitate an awareness and practice of “embodied algorithmicity”, implicating the viewer as part of a cybernetic system in place.
