About Sondra Perry

Sondra Perry (b. 1986, Perth Amboy, New Jersey) is an interdisciplinary artist who works with video, computer-based media and performance to explore the digital abstraction of identity. Her videos and performances foreground the tools of digital production as a way to critically reflect on new technologies of representation and to remobilize their potential. Her work revolves around blackness and black American history and ways in which technology shapes identity, often with her own personal history as a point of departure.
