Cristina Albu

Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art History and Theory
University of Missouri - Kansas City

My research focuses on crossovers between contemporary art, cognitive sciences, and technology. I explore how artists have inquired into the nature of self-consciousness and interpersonal awareness through the pairing of biofeedback devices with audio-video projections that enable an embodied understanding of mind’s complexity.
