Expo: Modding by Sondi


Expo: Modding by Sondi

Modding is a location-based video mapping installation by Sondi, a new media artist from Germany, born in Cameroon, and based in the Netherlands. Inspired by the concept of ‘modding’ in gaming (the activity of making changes to computer or games software or hardware), this exhibition invites viewers to question how our interactions and transformations in digital spaces resonate in our daily lives. Through the interplay of images and sound, Modding blends digital aesthetics and personal narratives to explore the relationship between the tangible and the virtual.

Sondi's work is deeply rooted in her identity as a person of the diaspora and acts as a conduit to unravel the intricate and intimate layers of identity, belonging, ownership, and heritage. Her work continuously navigates between virtual and physical spaces to reflect on the correlation between our corporeal, spiritual, and digital selves. Her body of work spans a diverse range of mediums, including Audio Visual Performance, Theater, Music, Film, and Education.

During ADE, Sondi will showcase a variety of her works including the location-based video mapping installation ‘Modding’, her video game on rest as a form of resistance titled ‘Sleep On It’ and her live visuals for the internationally known platform Boiler Room.
