Farber investigates ways the virtual redefines the physical world. Using custom-made software and collected material from Internet, she creates images, installations, and interactive works. These are product of research-based processes, and condense an abundance of information into unsuccessful data visualizations. Farber is interested in the politics imbedded in the algorithms we use daily, and in her work she highlights their design ramifications. She builds interfaces that celebrate chaos, and experiences that use frustration as strategy. As potential cartographies of space between the online and offline worlds, her artworks evoke existential reflections to a world co-habited by humans and algorithms.
