Ingrid Bachmann


Artist and Principle Investigator

Concordia University

INGRID BACHMANN has explored generative media, installation, and what she calls “pathetic technologies” that interface with studio and textile practices for over twenty years. Her work explores kinetics, sound, video, interactivity, code, micro-controllers, live hermit crabs, and other devices such as live Internet avatars. Using both redundant and state-of-the-art digital technologies, her projects create visually rich, immersive and interactive environments—spaces of encounter activated by the viewer—where various interactions and interventions can take shape. These works have been exhibited nationally and internationally in exhibitions and festivals in Canada, Europe, the United States, Asia, and Latin America, including The Patient, University of New South Wales (2016); Flesh of the World, University of Toronto Art Centre (2015); the 11th Havana Biennial (2012), Manifestation International d’art 6, Quebec City (2012); Lab 30, Augsburg (2010); and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (2010). She is an Associate Professor in Studio Arts at Concordia University and is the Director of the Institute of Everyday Life, an art/ideas lab.
