Melanie Hoffman

Melanie Hoff is an artist and educator examining the role technology plays in social organization and reinforcing hegemonic structures. They study how platforms and processes — including algorithms, data collection, social media, networks, simulation, and ritual — yield distinct modes of seeing, thinking, and feeling, structure social organization, and reinforce existing systems of power. Hoff writes software, leads experiments in pedagogy & installation, teaches Critical Interaction Design at Rutgers University, organizes Code Societies and teaches at the School for Poetic Computation. They are a founding member of the Cybernetics Library — an interdisciplinary browsing library that re-contextualizes the expansive history of cybernetic thought and practice through installation simulation, and literary activations. They can also be found in their studio, working or hanging upside down from the ceiling of a collective art warehouse space in Brooklyn called Soft Surplus; a space that they co-founded and help run with 19 other incredible practitioners.
