Eleanor is a multi-media artist, writer, and musician/sound artist born in Sheffield, England. She has often worked in moving image, audiovisual and installation, and frequently employs culled artefacts and montage, in the intersect of time based image with text, sound, performance, culled technology, and spacial work.
She began her academic art practice at University of Brighton with a Bachelors in Fine Art Critical Practice, where she developed in various media, particularly digital media, film, spatial work, and became seriously interested in philosophy and critical theory. During her time in Brighton she also became involved in DIY cultures and participated in activities such as the organizing of LadyFest (a feminist arts festival), and in forming a small collective for art and experimental sound.
After graduating, and developing an interest in interactive projects and engagement with critical theory, she moved to London and began an MA in Interactive Media & Critical Theory at Goldsmiths, University of London. During this time she worked on algorithms within the futurity of a city, using data, from both archival sources and from a generative process, as potential fictions and as interventions in narratives of “techno utopia”. She produced research based work in the form of installation, sound, video, writing, and artist books.
Eleanor moved to Berlin and initially worked for the digital arts festival Transmediale. She began post-graduate studies in Art & Media specializing in experimental film and new media arts at the University of the Arts (UDK) in Berlin under a DAAD scholarship. She has produced work in new media, film, installation, hybrid practice, sound, and writing. Recent interests have included gender and the body, embodiment, desire, cybernetics, ‘the Other’, borders, hyper-reality, and emergent-narratives. She is continually interested in representations of ‘the Other’ through hyper-reality environments.
