Heba Y. Amin’s work is embedded in extensive research and a studio practice that looks at the convergence of politics, technology, and urbanism. Working with various media, her work investigates the impact of infrastructure on the human psyche through junctures, glitches and flawed memory. By combining interconnected histories, her approach problematizes the narratives situated in contested territories by using the very tools used to construct them. She is particularly interested in tactics of subversion and techniques used to undermine systems as well as topics surrounding critical spatial practice and critical geography. Recently her work is preoccupied with the frameworks of space and territorial demarcations in the era of digitization and migration.
