I’m a researcher, sonic artist and theorist working with the trans literary notion of sound in language. I am doing practice led research as a PhD at QUT in Australia. I am also the founder of GIRRL [girrlsound : digital girrl]. GIRRL is a new international organization that promotes and support women working in sonic and digital arts. http://girrl-girrlsound-digitalgirrl.org
Creatively and theoretically I work across sound/text, the gallery and the web. I’m interested in the excess of language and literatures and slippages between genres. I make digital operas or operations compressing different fields together much like the notion of gesamtwert or aggregate value, in that I stage animated digital dummies like ventriloquist dummies, performing scores of sound.

In my trans-disciplinary Postdoctoral research I am brokering new art/science collaborations whilst continuing my explorations into innovative art/science practices. My artworks are grounded in the interconnectedness between the biomedical sciences and twenty first century perceptions of the “self”. They are structured to facilitate individual viewer immersion and completion through participation - either in real-time or virtually. I re-position installation viewers as active participants rather than passive observers of pre-existing systems. I focus on reinterpreting the research data from my scientific experiments and recontextualising it in interactive artworks, using a range of media.
