Oksana Kryzhanivska

University of Calgary
PhD Candidate
Oksana investigates cross influencing of technology and art as a researcher and practicing artist. This practice inquires into tactile interaction with flesh-like objects in a form of aesthetic experience, encountered by the group of visitors. The artist strives to reestablish human sensory relationship with the current technology by examining the notion of aesthetic experience and sensation in sculpture.
Oksana’s artistic focus developed from sculptural work about the relationship of human body and augmenting technology into exploration of technology as an art medium. With multisensory interactive installations, Oksana examines the sensational aura encompassing the art objects and the visitors. This notion of aura furthers the understanding of shared spaces, group interactivity and embodied aesthetic perception. Oksana’s exhibitions create spaces of shared sensations by simulating artist’s embodied experiences of the medium through visual, textural, vibrational, and sonic representation of the physical sensations with sculptural material and electronics.
