Sofia Mellander - MDes Sound for the Moving Image (2022)

Sofia Mellander’s practice brings together the unlikely pairing of Swedish folk music and social media, combining the two in a trilogy of short performance films: Control My Bodiless Form. Each of the three pieces features folk-inspired music with collaborative lyrics derived from an online questionnaire that asks participants about their personal experiences of cyberspace. The work is in turns amusing, absurd, and darkly disturbing. In merging two culturally and aesthetically diverse concepts, Sofia creates a satirical and utterly beguiling set of music videos that modernize the folk music genre, through subverting the conventions of sound and story-telling often found within it.

Sofia Mellander was The Glasgow School of Art Foulis Medal Prize Winner 2022.
