Kristin completed a Master of Fine Arts (Visual Arts) in 2014, at The University of Melbourne (VCA & MCM), with a thesis You and Me: Models of Self-Representation in Participatory Culture. Kristin McIver’s multi-disciplinary conceptual practice includes sculpture, painting, sound and installation. Utilizing devices such as language, light, mixed media and new media, the works explore themes of identity and celebrity within the context of participatory and consumer culture. Her recent works examine personal identity and its relationship to social media, and how the participants of digital consumer culture become both the subject and object of the production cycle. McIver’s work proposes that ideologies served to consumers through traditional and social media, empowered by advancing technologies, and driven by market forces, become referents for new models of self-representation.
