Jasmine Guffond is an artist and composer working at the interface of social, political and technical infrastructures. Her practice spans live performance, recording, sound installation and custom made browser add-on. Through the sonification of data she addresses the potential of sound to engage with contemporary political questions and engages listening as a situated knowledge practice.
Interested in providing an audible presence for phenomena that lies beyond human perception, via the sonification of facial recognition algorithms, global networks, or Internet tracking cookies she questions what it means for our personal habits to be traceable, and for our identities, choices and personalities to be reduced to streams of data.
In 2021 Dr. Jasmine Guffond completed her PhD at the University of New South Wales Art, Design & Architecture department, where she conducted research into sound as a method of investigation into online surveillance cultures. She teaches casually at the Sound Studies and Sonic Arts masters program at the UdK in Berlin.
