Soraya Fatha multi-disaplinarty practice combines video, software, sculpture and found objects to create immersive compositions that exist in both digital and physical environments.
Her bold use of tangents, associations and analogies help simulate disjointed
narratives replicating the rhythms of online browsing. It is Fatha’s fragmented
love affair with instant connectivity that is executed in her informal film and
web aesthetic. She documents her personal journeys of rapid behavioural
transitions between loss, humour, passion and loneliness. Fatha often uses
multiple screens to exaggerate the tangibility of a portable device augmenting
the intimate physical control given by the familiar interaction of a touch
screen, computer mouse, head-set or microphone. Fatha creates a heart-felt
parody of a coming-of-age post-modern digital landscape.
