Visiting guest: Helen Pritchard

As an artist and geographer, my interdisciplinary work brings together the fields of Computational Aesthetics, Geography, Design and Feminist TechnoScience. My practice is both one of writing and making and these two modes mutually inform each other in order to consider the impact of computational practices on our engagement with environments. Central to my work is the consideration of co-research, participation and environmental practices. My practice often emerges as workshops, collaborative events and computational art.

Since 2013 I have been a member of the European Research Council funded project “Citizen Sense” led by Dr Jennifer Gabrys. Where in collaboration we have developed groundbreaking and internationally recognised participatory research on sensing practices. As both researchers and makers, we have developed innovative creative methods that use physical computing and sensing technologies to think through and develop new theories of citizen sensing.
