Engaging in a research-driven practice that spans installation, sound, film, performance and sculpture, Aura Satz often investigates the history and use of twentieth-century inventions and the way technological advances have informed cultural shifts in communication and perception of proximity and distance. Fascinated by the sculptural, ergonomic and visceral qualities of now obsolete technologies, Satz considers the connections between objects and the body; examining the manner in which many devices were modelled on human anatomy, acting almost as prosthetic extensions of the individual.
