Amor Muñoz (Mexico City, 1979).
Amor works across textiles, performance, drawing, sound and experimental electronics to explore the relationship between technology and society, showing a special interest in the interaction between material forms and social discourse. She is particularly interested in how technology affects fabrication systems and how manual labor and handcrafts are changing in a contemporary global economy. Her research is focused on the history of technology, language systems, technological obsolescence, appropriated technologies, handicraft and production systems. Her process is linked to DIY strategies and the Maker movement.
