Ivy Fu is a sound artist, curator, and a researcher of surveillance, eavesdropping and sensory spaces currently studying in the Digital Musics program at Dartmouth under Ash Fure and Cesar Alvarez. Using improvisational movements, generative visuals, anti-communicative technology, and homemade circuits, she creates organic sensory dwellings, sentient machines and self-regenerative ecospheres that provide fugitive spaces for identity in crisis, territories that are sonically transgressed, and complex historic and personal narratives that desire to be further examined. She recently completed her first installation as part of the artist duo the universal machine. Their project Ear Zero realized her original prototype of the Deleuzian body without organs, an inverted ear that only annihilates sounds in its listening act, through co-constructing a sentient, womb-like feedback machine. Her works have been featured in The Allen Memorial Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art, Fireland Association of Art, The Shed, The Atlantic Center for the Arts, Hashtag gallery, International Contemporary Ensemble, the She Scores music festival, and Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt.
