Malika Sen is originally from India. She received her Bachelor’s degree from the M.S University of Baroda located in Gujarat in India. She is enrolled in the MFA Fine Arts Program in the School of Visual Arts and works with videos, photos and related Media in New York. She cites as her main influences Bill Viola, Rene Descartes and Jean Baudrillard. After receiving the ‘Best Concept’ Accolade from United States-India Educational Foundation for an art competition in portraiture, her decision to study Fine Arts was further reinstated. She works with abstract and theoretical concepts and ideas that she seeks to endow with a visual form. She strives to achieve an objectivism and realize through her work the emotional dimension that is embedded in theoretical algorithms that can generate new logical configurations.
Malika Sen works with photos, videos, screenshots in order to provide empirical observations of what she experiences in her daily life that suggest ‘other realities’ and might allude to the fact that the irrational is actually not. She is attempting to reshape the idea of skill, logic or rationality. She attempts to realize the relationship between reality and perception and examine how human will is connected to control and organization, and what happens if we rationalize ‘mistakes’ or ‘glitches’ . She explores how communication takes place and energy is transferred between humans and machines. She explores the idea that Technology is a part of our lives and is on the verge of assuming an independent entity.
