Born in Canada in 1966, Michelle Teran is a media artist working in a networked live art practice. She became involved in the media arts after studying art history, theatre, cultural theory, painting and drawing at Hospicio Cbanas in Guadalajara (1986-87), Instituto de las Bellas Arts, San Miguel de Allende (1987), and the Ontario College of Art.
Her works are explorations into the intersections between social and technological networks, and the physical and media space that we embody and inhabit. Her international performances and experimental play into putting form into the formless utilize video from [public] webcams, wireless networks and cameras, online collaborative communication environments, streams, in combination with physical objects and gestures in public spaces. Her work covers live installations, lectures, online performances and connected events, temporary lab spaces, telepresences, public space interventions and video.
