artist statement and bio

Christina Balch is a multi-media artist interested in the way people define themselves digitally, especially through the use of mobile technology and self-documentation. Her work has been exhibited in the Boston area and in Los Angeles. Recently, Christina learned basic programming languages, Javascript and Arduino, and has incorporated engineering into her practice. She curated a performance-based art exhibit called Performing the Home at the Nave Gallery in Somerville, Massachusetts. In 2014, the Awake photo project was installed at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and at TED@StateStreet in London where Christina also gave a TED talk. Christina is based in Boston and a Southern California native.

Process and experimentation play an important role in Christina’s practice. Her latest project titled Extensions explores digital memory and personal data by creating both physical and digital objects. The act of repetition is prevalent, especially in the form of mobile photography, such as in Awake, where Christina turned the camera on herself to create over a thousand portraits to explore and redefine the various constructs and standards of visual language, especially as how they relate to women.
