Jem Shearer

The core of my practice explores our current understandings of care and comfort by investigating identity, virtual space, intimacy, and how the body interacts with the digital sphere. I use the past to inform the future, conjuring subtle nostalgic references surrounding ideas of play throughout my work. Currently, my work focuses on how technology mediates intimacy by exploring queer relationships and identity, digital voyeurism, and the hetero gaze. Inspired by how we form, nurture and embrace intimacy and identity digitally, my work intends to create a space where the audience can reflect, using video, installation and interaction to shift their reality temporarily. By challenging hetero biases within our cyberspace societies, I intend to queer the digital space.
