Triton Mobley is a new media artist and scholar whose interventionist works and guerrilla performances have been exhibited at CURRENTS Virtual Festival, Geidai Games Online at Tokyo University of the Arts, and Art Basel Miami, and staged in New York, Boston, Providence, and across Japan. Mobley's praxis culls together critical making methodologies across performative installations, programmable fabrications, and speculative industrial design—fashioning polemical art object assemblages that engender public reexamination. Mobley's research is framed within economies of digital perceptions and cultural optics—problematizing notions of being situated between the discontinuities of emergent technologies and communities of marginality. These installations are a reimagining of obfuscation tactics for working class resistance within the digital delay—fabricated through art hacktivist [jugaad] outputs.
