LA WOMAN: TIFFANY TRENDA

LA Woman Documentary:

Tiffany Trenda - "Woman's Body and Art"

Tiffany Trenda is a video installation performance artist based out of Malibu, CA. She received her BFA from Art Center College of Design and her MFA from UCLA Design and Media Arts. She has exhibited at Robert Berman, Farmani Gallery, Photo San Francisco, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, LACE, Korean Cultural Center, Highways, and Track 16. In 2009, she created an artist installation for Photo Los Angeles and performed live. Later that year she performed “Entropy” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Trenda won the prize of The Artist of the Year at the London Creative Awards in 2008 and 2009. Recently, she performed at the World Fair, Shanghai, China and premiered her first short film at the A&D Museum.

 

Her process is to take technology (LCDs, video projectors, cameras, etc.) and create a digital environment with an embodied performance that simulates the human psyche.  Her work is an investigation of how we are defined and redefined through the integration of technology. Trenda amalgamates LCD screens and her body making her identity interchangeable.  In retrospect, the viewer associates the screen as being human.  She questions how far can this loss of the human body be substituted until it loses all human connectivity.  In Trenda’s work the viewer is physically and visually immersed in how the psyche evolves to relate and survive with the machine.  She states that we are not only dealing with issues of machine-implemented bodies but our identities and human connection is through a screen.  This will change how we see others and ourselves with the assemblage of new technology.  This disconnection is a result of our desire for a total state of pure sensualism.
