Amber's work as an artist pairs lyrical narrative with larger notions of home, memory, and identity. She vacillates between physical and digital worlds, combining images and found objects through installation and video while using artist books to physically archive digital phenomenon. She is interested in the way one's surroundings, whether virtual, man made, or natural, come to shape one's behavior and identity. She draws attention to everyday technologies by upsetting the usual means of interaction and thereby exposing the ways technologies can influence behavior. Her work functions as a playful critique to imagine new ways of existing online.
