Amanda Moore’s research is focused on the overlaps and borders of various disciplines that address issues of technologically mediated communication. Devices employed by everyday technologies to communicate– broadcast television, Skype, Facebook, blogs,
email–claim to close gaps in time and space between individuals, while they simultaneously augment and conceal an already present void in communication. Through the use of mimetic mediation in performances, Moore aims to facilitate interactions with voids as a means of achieving mutual understanding. Since receiving a Master of Science on Visual Studies from MIT’s Program in Art, Culture & Technology in 2011, Moore has worked for several regional and international institutions, including Tufts University & The School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf. Most recently, Moore was engaged as Visiting Junior Researcher at the Nanyang Technological University Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore.

Projects include “void communication: the medium and the real,” “becoming archive,” “the no no nothing,” “performance, perception, parasocial interaction, and “Society of Creatives.” Live performances, mediated by technology, are transmitted via Skype, webcast, YouTube and radio broadcast (WMBR 88.1 FM).
