Sophia Oppel is an interdisciplinary arts practitioner and researcher interested in examining digital interfaces and physical architectures as parallel sites of power. Oppel deploys transparent substrates—glass, mirror, and the screen—as a framework to consider the paradoxes of legibility under surveillance capitalism. Oppel’s current work considers both the complicity with, and refusal of, biometric capture on a bodily scale. She has a BFA from OCAD University and is currently completing a Master of Visual Studies at the University of Toronto. Oppel has exhibited locally and internationally.
