Trenda performing and exhibiting at Context Art Miami Dec. 2, 5, and 6


Tiffany Trenda, in collaboration with 3D Systems presents Ubiquitous States, an interactive 3d printed performance art piece. This will debut at The McLoughlin Gallery’s booth.

Performance Times:  VIP Preview Tues, Dec. 1st 7- 7:30 p.m. 8 – 8:30 p.m.

Sat. 5th, Sun. 6th 1-1:30 p.m. 2-2:30 p.m.


Tiffany Trenda, along with 3D Systems, and award winning designer, Janne Kyttanen, will create a unique performance that combines biofeedback, visualization, and wearable tech-fashion. Trenda will don a 3D printed dress. The dress will have an embedded Microsoft Surface Pro 2. The image on the screen will show a data visualization of both the participant’s and Trenda’s heartbeat. This is represented by an animation of shapes (crystal fragments) falling in and out of the screen.

During the performance, the artist will approach a spectator and place a heart monitor (located at Trenda’s fingertip inside the glove) on the viewer’s neck or wrist. Once the sensor reads the pulse of the user, the imagery on the screen will change and show both pulses simultaneously. At this time, Trenda and the viewer will try and match their rhythms’ to create another change in the animation. The participant can also touch the shapes on the screen to make them glow and rotate. Therefore, making the performance interactive.
