Nica Ross is a visual artist whose work challenges normative ideologies that are reinforced by technology and game play. Their current practice is an evolving pursuit of pleasure checked; or perhaps bolstered, by the failure of representation. This work takes multiple forms: video installation, performance, gayming, sporting and more. The continuity across these forms is an invitation that is inherent in each piece. They currently work as an instructor in the Video Media Design option within the School of Drama at Carnegie Mellon University.
