Alexandra Dementievas main interest is application of social psychology and perception in multimedia interactive installations. Her video work integrates different elements, including behavioral psychology and developing narrative through a point of view of subjective camera. Her interactive installation projects attempt to widen mind’s perception possibilities by different production means: computers, video projections, use of sound bands, slides, photography, etc. By making certain historical, cultural and political allusions her exhibition sites create the frame within which the idea develops. The projects explore spectators depths of perceptional experience and interaction of an individual spectator with the exhibition proper, as well as with other visitors. The object on an installation or its production means become less important to her than the mind of a user. Thus the latter becomes the center of the project or the main actor of the performance.
