Sophia Oppel is an arts practitioner born and based inToronto, Ontario. Oppel’s work addresses the position of insidious, hegemonic power embedded in networked existence and its manifestations in embodied experience. Oppel’s practice is based in digital media and interactive installations; employing algorithms, web applications and software pre-sets as subject matter, she attempts to deconstruct the implicit assumptions imposed upon users. Oppel received her BFA from OCAD University and is currently a co-director of Bunker 2 Gallery and a Curatorial Project Assistant at Gallery 44. Oppel has exhibited throughout Ontario, including shows at InterAccess Gallery, Queen Specific, Gallery TPW, Bunker 2, Forest City Gallery, and Xpace Cultural Center.
