Amanda Covach is an interdisciplinary Mexican-American artist who focuses on sculptural installations that relate directly with the body as points of interaction and reaction. Her work often touches on the topics of sexuality, race, queer theory and feminism. Amanda is interested in exploring moments in shared time, as a three-dimension being passing through the fourth dimension she’s curious of the phenomena of memory, onism, and disassociation. She currently resides in South Florida and works at the Museum Of Contemporary Art North Miami.
Installation title: Conversations With Hannah
Plexiglass, Orange Pi open source single board computers, artificial hair, routers, electrical cords, LED lights, seating, 8′ x 11′ x 20″ high
This piece arose out of the need to capture the experience of a conversation around a fire. Words mix together in the light and the comfort of sheer enjoyment in another presence of trust. A safe bubble of openness and peace. It is a true collaboration between myself and my best friend Hannah, an accomplished programmer. Without her the work wouldn’t exist as it is, and the experiences wouldn’t be what they were or will be. Without you the conversation wouldn’t happen, so please pull up a seat.
