is a visual/new media artist. Recently she completed her MVA at Sydney College of the Arts. She has worked as a graphic designer as well as drawn comix. She co-edited Drawing Away: an Australian women’s comic book.
We have been collaborating on new media art projects for 10 years. For the last 5 years, we have been working as Out-of-Sync. We are interested in finding ways for sound and image to work together in new media, so that neither is hegemonic but there is a play and tension between them.
Our work has recently taken a fictive swerve into the imaginary science of ‘pataphysics. This non-sense, humorous science sits beside and perturbs Science. The ‘pataphyscial turn has brought our concern with the cultural effects of science together with a playful approach to writing and performance.
In 2002 we were invited to participate in the Solar Circuit new media residency on Maria Island, and Journey to the C/enter was a result of this residency (‘Maid in Cyberspace’, Montreal Feb 2003). We are also members of ICOLS (www.icols.org) and the official Rumourologists in the Local Unit of Missing Links. We performed at the ICOLS launch, MCA, Sydney July 2002.
Previous collaborations include CD-Roms, Shock in the Ear; installations, including Shock in the Ear, Dead Centre: the body with organs, Volcano and Museum of Rumour (a net.art installation); as well as net.art works which can be accessed through our website www.out-of-sync.com/
