She has exhibited internationally at a number of shows including the Venice Biennale (86), P.S.1 Museum, NY (89), Long Beach Museum (93), Ernst Museum of Budapest (94), and most recently, at the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has moved from performance and video installations, to experimental research that connects networked environ­ments to physical public spaces. She is interested in questioning ways that constructions of physical and ephemeral spaces effect collectively embodied behaviour. Her current collaborative project, Bodies INCorporated, is devised to facilitate exploration into the social psychology of group dynamics, actualized in corporate structure. Victoria is an Associate Professor at the Univerity of California, Santa Barbara, teaching Electronic Intermedia and Computer Image, and has been instrumental in fostering an interdisciplinary collaboration between the College of Engineering and Art Studio.
