Amalia Lindo (b. 1990, United States) is multi-disciplinary artist based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (First Class Honours) in 2016 at MADA, Monash University. Incorporating human and algorithmic decision-making to the practice of filmmaking, her video and installation practice explores the impacts of human-machine interaction as a result of automation. By aggregating video material from social networking and crowdsourcing platforms, her work examines how automated technologies displace human labour by blurring the boundaries between work and consumption.
