Areej Huniti is an artist and researcher based in Amman, Jordan. Her interest lies in exploring the interrelation between individuals and technologies within cultural, societal and political context. Her current work explores the magic and seduction of reality. By weaving real elements with fiction she wishes to complexify reality, collapse geographies while imagining different future possibilities.
Areej received an MA in Global Digital Cultures from SOAS University of London. During her studies she was researching the impact of immersive virtual experiences on the body. She also looked beyond the surface and the social constructs of the body and attempted to challeng the assumptions that suggest that digital technologies are purely instrumental. She examined how artists utilise technology to challenge the colonisation of the body’s interior by the medical gaze.
