Degree: MA Contemporary Art Practice
University: Edinburgh College of Art
Graduation Year: 2020
Having taught Art in Secondary Education for the past six years, Katie is currently studying an MA in Contemporary Art Practice at Edinburgh College of Art to develop her portfolio and pursue a career creating and exhibiting work. Her practice began creating work with new media technologies through the construction and deconstruction of digital imagery, coding and unintentional errors that occur in our technological experiences.
Katie questions the shape and form of digital culture and how this could be represented when it’s forced to slow down. She creates work that goes against a logical order, that interprets the moments a ‘pure’ digital system can stretch, navigate and reveal its nonsense within a physical space even away from switched off devices.
'Powering the Cloud' and 'Data Dreamland' is a current series of works that look at the connections between new media technology and archaic power, looking at geology, resources of power, materiality of technology and the geopolitical concerns with our future use of technology.
