At CultureHub, Tiri’s work explores the manipulation of sound in the context of technological consumerism, examining human relationships through the use of transmitted signals, machine learning, chatbots, and bodily movement. Her research is about choice in the era of automation, and how the performer can use lack of choice as an improvisation platform.
