Victoria Keddie is an artist working within cross disciplines of sound, video, installation, and performance.I have devoted my work and research into an expanded use of media, with a particular focus on broadcasting and the use of electromagnetic energies.I explore the tools built for broadcasting audio and visual signals and turn these technologies in on themselves. This reflexivity allows new methodologies to manifest, where the language embedded in these machines move quickly and transform with a kind of inner logic.
Keddie is the Co-Director of E.S.P. TV, a nomadic TV studio that hybridizes technologies to realize synthetic environments and deconstruct the televisual for live performance. This project led to the purchasing and re outfitting of an ENG van for an expanded take on mobile broadcast operations. The ENG van, named Unit 11, is also used for the purpose of exploring electronic instrumentation in relation to surrounding geographies.
Keddie holds an MA degree from New York University and a BFA from University of the Arts in Philadelphia with a Mobility Fellowship at the California College of Arts in San Francisco, CA.
