Project Description: I have curated several public media installations including The Situated Cinema project (Pleasure Dome, 2015), and Urbanity on Film (Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers, 2009). I co-edited the anthology Sculpting Cinema (2018), and produce academic writing around expanded cinema, and media installation art. In both of these practices, I am interested in how art creates space for conversation with viewers, and I particularly want to take art out of the usual exhibition venues into unique sites that engage non-traditional audiences. I would love to collaborate with science and business partners, who value art as a different way of thinking through the problems of their fields.
