Ami Clarke

Ami Clarke is an artist, writer, and educator, working within the emergent behaviours that come of the complex protocols of platform capitalism in everyday assemblages, with a focus on the inter-dependencies between code and language in hyper-networked culture. She utilises various digital media, often distributed, with aspects of live programming, to produce video/sound and spoken word performance. Her work is conceptually framed in ways that means critique is often articulated through its production, drawing out new (old) behaviours emerging from human engagement with technology through performative modes. She is interested in acknowledging, and thinking through the complexities of the subject emerging in synthesis with their environment from a post-human position.

She is founder of Banner Repeater; a reading room with a public Archive of Artists’ Publishing and project space, opening up an experimental space for others, on a working train station platform at Hackney Downs station, London. Her work is included in Information edited by Sarah Cook (2016) - an art-historical reassessment of information-based art and exhibition curation, from 1960s conceptualism to current digital and network-based practices - Whitechapel Documents in Contemporary Art and MIT press series.
