Marija Bozinovska Jones explores links between social, computational and organic architectures. Her work queries how technocapitalist amplification affects living and non-living elements. She unpacks cryptic ways of forging subjectivity through multitude of subject interests: intelligence (dis)embodiments, gamification and self-regulation in biological and other systems which mimic these.

Bozinovska Jones has presented work among others at Transmediale at Haus Der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Tate Exchange/ Tate Modern in London, Sonic Acts Academy in Amsterdam, Rewire at the Hague, Furtherfield/ Serpentine Marathon in London, Keychange::Amplify at MUTEK in Montreal and Buenos Aires, CTM and Deutschlandradio Kultur in Berlin.

Within the frame of the residency Marija Bozinovska Jones focuses on instigating collaborative practices and participatory work under the umbrella interest of affective conditioning.

Recent activities include collaboration with the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College to produce FabricatedIntimacy.Tech and the ’Self Optimization’ series, which collectively probe the concept of “selfhood" as a personal, social and performed construct. Jones has likewise been engaging the digital gaze of the female: both as mediated formulation and through anthropomorphised technologies via use of female voice.
