Speaker: Jasmine Guffond

Jasmine Guffond is an artist and composer working at the interface of social, political and technical infrastructures. Her practice spans live performance, recording, sound installation and custom made browser plug-in. Through the sonification of data she addresses the potential of sound to engage with contemporary political questions. Interested in providing an audible presence for phenomena that lies beyond human perception, via the sonification of facial recognition algorithms, global networks, or internet tracking cookies she questions what it means for our personal habits to be traceable, and for our identities, choices and personalities to be reduced to streams of data.

Jasmine Guffond is an artist and composer working at the interface of social, political and technical infrastructures. Her practice spans live performance, recording, sound installation and custom made browser plug-in. Through sonification, that is the translation of data into sound, she addresses the potential of sound to engage with contemporary political questions. With a focus on sonifying data produced by digital surveillance technologies Jasmine produces sound based artworks that address contemporary surveillance cultures by exposing otherwise intangible monitoring infrastructures. Interested in providing an audible presence for phenomena that lies beyond human perception, via the sonification of facial recognition algorithms, global networks, or internet tracking cookies she engages listening as a mode of investigation into the ways contemporary digital surveillance intersects with our everyday private and public experience. By sonically exposing real-time digital surveillance she examines the ways in which our relationships to being surveilled have become normalised and questions what it means for our personal habits to be traceable.
Jasmine has exhibited internationally, released records with the Sonic Pieces (2015, 2017) and Karlrecords (2018) labels, received the ‘Working Grant for New Music and Sound Art’ from the Berlin Senate (2016) and is a current PhD candidate at UNSWAD, conducting research into sound as a method of investigation into contemporary online surveillance cultures.
