Alejandra Perez Nuñez (Punta Arenas, 1972) is an independent artist and a member of a diverse group of practitioners and writers examining the electromagnetic environment in relation to post industrial economies. As a noise performer working with open source tools she participates in projects dealing with radio, connected performance and social science fiction. Her work is based on a decolonial methodological perspective: she uses sound as a device to critically investigate that which is imperceptible to the eye and hidden in contemporary capitalist narratives. In recent years she has focused her study on the Chilean Antarctica. Her experimental listening processes reflect the complex, stratified sediment of political processes that appropriate and exploit the continent. Her research focuses predominantly on material developments dating from the Cold War era that were influenced by colonial expeditions from the beginning of the twentieth century.
