Eye Suriyanon


b. 1996 Bangkok,THA 
based Glasgow, UK

Eye Suriyanon grew up in the Northeast and south of Thailand and has spent more than half of her life in the suburbs of England.

The subjects of her work are stories of personal affects as a dual citizen, a daughter of an immigrant and an artist working with new technology.

Her practice explores the intersection of power, language and a sense of belonging via these narratives. She often uses Machine Learning as a tool to reframe and question these relationships within the perimeters of moving images, spatial audio and other forms.

The tension between the fixed framed medium and the fluidity of sound ignites the question of spatial power; whether sound can become an extension of your physical space and how it can be utilised to reclaim lost grounds. This is intertwined with the use of language and how words from two languages can coexist, expand and construct the reality that surrounds us  - whether it is between humans and machines or amongst ourselves. These familiar sounds and language can help establish a sense of belonging as a bridge between us and others or as a stable home base in this fast-moving world.
