Erika Lincoln challenges existing knowledges and ideologies embedded in symbols, systems, and objects. Her method of artmaking speaks from a perspective of cognitive difference in the style of non-conformity, un-doing, mis-fitting, and troubling.
Using the techniques of hacking, tinkering, circuit bending, creative coding, and critical making she focuses on how errors, glitches, noise, and unexpected behaviours can give rise to fluctuating timelines, divergent perceptions, and alternative modes of communication.
She makes artworks that use elements of automation, duration, and interaction incorporating sculpture, sound, video, robotics, and computation. Her artworks are built to be arranged in multiple configurations, time based to allow for material accumulations, or programmed to reveal emergent behaviours through viewer interaction. She incorporates these features into her artworks to emphasise that art is flexible, responsive, interconnected, and inseparable from the larger world.
She is currently researching artificial intelligence framed by the concepts of extended cognition, neurodiversity, and crip technoscience.
