Alice Tuppen-Corps' artistic practice explores notions of intimacy, identity and communication. Interactive technologies connect video, performance and sculptural artworks in specific locations, navigating through mediated, actual and imagined landscapes. The work assumes a dialogical space, positioning the audience, artist and artworks as both participants and observers, poised somewhere between immersion and more self-conscious, knowing states. Such embodiments seek to understand individuals’ life experiences and offers space for conversation, contemplation and connection.
