Sound Portraits by Saiana Bugio

Siana undertook ACM202 whilst an exchange student in 2013.

She was particularly interested in the notion of glitch practice and the strategy of translating digital data from one context to another.

You can also see how this work has been informed by the About Face project brief 🙂

Photomediations Machine is an excellent publication – we are very proud of her receiving this recognition.

The increasingly complex relationship between humans and computers and the strong influence that technologies have on us in modern society lie at the basis of this project. Sound Portraits explores the problematic nature of representation and language in the contemporary digital age, while engaging with notions of identity. It focuses on the neutrality of computer language as opposed to that of human language and investigates, through visual representation, the act of translating the data that forms a picture (.jpeg) into an audio file (.mp3)

Saiana Bugio was born in Italy and grew up in a bilingual environment, with an Italian father and a Russian mother. She is a graduate of the BA Combined Honours Degree from the University Roehampton (London).
