Miriam Simun (born in Silicon Valley, United States; lives in Lisbon, Portugal, and New York, United States) is interested in encounters between bodies, human and nonhuman, and techno-ecosystems—ecosystems resulting from cutting-edge technologies and globalized market economies with vast ecological impacts. Simun creates performances, videos, and polysensory installations in which hybridity and assemblage serve as a basis for thinking of a trans-humanist future. Many of her works are articulated around the idea of disruption and the feelings that it provokes, in order to propose new possibilities for living in response to the social, technological, and environmental issues that define the contemporary era.
