Rebecca Kopycinski

Multimedia Performance Art


Artist's Statement:
I use music, video, theatrical performance, digital and analog experiences and more to tell multimedia narratives. I am obsessed with the perception of and the ephemeral nature of reality, and how we manufacture that reality through a combination of internal (biological) and external (social) forces, namely: memory, behavior, experience, choice, habit, social zeitgeist, politics, media, education, race, class, etc. My stories inherently explore this idea. Research is a cornerstone of my creative process and I often find myself deep in the fields of neuroscience, quantum physics, social psychology, and more. My compositional methods (music, video, design, etc) are a combination of sampling and mash-up culture juxtaposed with original material. Though my training is in classical vocal performance, I am also an experienced filmmaker. I use these skills in my work, as well as graphic design, electronic music composition, playwriting, a/v installation, and more.
