Praise

“Ksenia Fedorova is not going to bore you with the latest approach to UXI. From secretly human AI assistants to videos of faces manipulated by computer-controlled electrodes, the artworks analyzed in Fedorova’s terrific book reveal interfacing to be an active intersubjective mode between us and our cyborgian devices, with results that are affective as well as aesthetic.”
—Caroline A. Jones, Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives, School of Architecture and Planning, MIT; author of Symbionts: Contemporary Artists and the Biosphere (2021)
 
“In an age when our faces, voices, emotions and bodies are increasingly being interpreted by computational systems, Ksenia Fedorova’s Tactics of Interfacing sharply analyzes how artistic practices with these very technologies can open up new and expressive ways of reconceiving the boundaries between humans and machines.”
—Chris Salter, Artist, Professor of Computation Arts, Concordia University and Co-Director, Hexagram
 
“Ksenia Fedorova offers profound insights into the fluidity and hybridity of affective, embodied human experience and suggests strategies for harnessing subjectivity and intersubjectivity as forms of resistance to algorithmic objectification. Tactics of Interfacing will be vital reading for scholars in the arts, cultural studies, and STS.”
—Edward Shanken, Associate Professor, University of California, Santa Cruz; author of Art and Electronic Media
