Heidi Tikka is a visual artist based in Helsinki. She works on context and site-specific installations that often involve participatory processes. Her works inquire into the interfaces between humans and information systems and they often place the spectator in a performative, embodied relation with the work. In her artistic research Heidi Tikka investigates what kinds of ontological questions emerge when interactive media art installations are made accountable as technical systems and heterogenous networks of production. She works as a writer and a lecturer and is a doctorate candidate at the Department of Media, Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Tikka graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA in 1992.
