Trenda performing and lecturing at Creative Tech Week Fri May 6


Tiffany Trenda is a new media performance artist based out of New York & Los Angeles. For this Hyphen Hub night, Trenda will perform “Body Code”  – a unique performance in which the artist encourages viewers to scan her body with their smart phone. This scan from the printed QR codes found on the artist’s latex suit then takes them to a certain page found on the Body Code website. Depending on where the viewer scans, they will read searches consisting of two key words: man-made chemicals and the corresponding part of the body:  eye, muscle, throat, etc.

Scan, Touch, and Interact: Redefining the Human Body As technological devices become an integral part of our daily lives, we relate to them as if they are part of our skin and part of our identities. This will change how we see others and ourselves with the integration of the human body with new technology. The meaning of scan, touch, and interact have completely transformed. What was once describing human to human contact, is now defining human to machine interaction. We are curating our lives by revealing and concealing ourselves through the materialization of screens. How does this change our behaviors? Does this effect the ideological perspective of the female body? Today, our technology-obsessed culture are constantly changing, shifting, and redefining the human body.
