About the Artist
Anna Friz is a Canadian sound and media artist that specializes in multi-channel transmission systems for installation, performance and broadcast. She also creates dynamic, atmospheric compositions for theatre, dance, film and solo performance that reflect upon public media culture or reveal expressive interior landscapes. Her current research involves cross-disciplinary sonic practices that highlight unstable systems, open spaces to new interpretations and engage in perceptual feedback. Together with multi-media artist Konrad Korabiewski, Friz is undertaking research in Iceland, California and Chile working with material transformations of sound and signal. She also works with the Toronto-based collective Public Studio to create multi-channel film installations and sculptures which critically consider the social politics of landscape and infrastructure.
