Lives and works in Wollongong
My practice pivots on the transformative relationship between art and technology. My works draw from philosophical and scientific enquiries to investigate materialist practices and processes. In particular, I am interested in how the textual imprints of media, mediums, and materials in artworks shape our experience.
My object and installation works were included A Working Model of the World (2017 – 8) at UNSW Art Galleries, Sheila C Johnson Design Centre, and Life Space Science Art Research Gallery, Awfully Wonderful (2011) at Performance Space and in BEAPworks (2004) at the Perth International Art Festival.
My screenworks have been exhibited as part of international screening programs including No References: A Revisit of Hong Kong Video and Media Art from 1985 at Videotage (2016), China Remixed Initiative (2017) at Indiana University, and No Trans-national – Liquid Borders and Empty Promises (2012) at ISE Cultural Foundation, New York.
I was the Australia Council’s artist-in-residence in Tokyo in 2008 where I produced the online work, Autumn Almanac of Tokyo which later led to The Illustrated Almanac of the Illawarra and Beyond (2011 – 2). The print editions of The Illustrated Almanac of Beyond was exhibited at the Wollongong Gallery in 2017.
I am a senior lecturer in media arts at the University of Wollongong, Australia.
