Michaela Davies is a cross-disciplinary artist working with installation, sculpture, sound, performance and video. A doctor of psychology, her practice is informed by an interest in the role of psychological and physical agency in creative processes and performance, and how obstruction can change the trajectory of both individual development and creative outcomes in and beyond the context of musical performance.
Her recent work has used electric muscle stimulation and other methods to both obstruct and extend human capabilities and musical possibilities in composition and improvisation, with performances internationally and throughout Australia. In addition to exploring sound in installation & performance, Davies plays electric bass in numerous projects.
A full CV is available on Davies's homepage.
