DANA DAL BO deftly bounces between mediums; textiles, photography, video, performance, and the net. She works as an artist on a number of multidisciplinary research teams, which she refers to as co-inquiries that cross art, science, and medicine including Hybrid Bodies which explores the phenomenological aspects of organ transplant and donation, and Space Tango where as Artist in Residence she is researching the artistic potentials of the microgravity environment.
Her interests span surveillance practices, reality television, re-enactments, the supernatural and the posthuman. In looking back at the history of science, medicine and psychology she disrupts the empire of the empirical as the only measure for determining the healthy from the aberrant. Her work follows voyeurism, exhibitionism, narcissism, and hysteria into contemporary phenomena like selfies unsettling how popular culture and social media influence the re/de/construction of identity and value. Dal Bo’s work always evokes a seductive, speculative future that is grounded in an eerie pan-optical present.
