Head of BSc Digital Arts Computing and a lecturer in Computational and Digital Arts. As an artist and geographer, her inter-disciplinary work brings together the fields of Computational Aesthetics, Geography, Design and Feminist Technoscience. Her specialisation is both one of writing and practice, and she uses this combination to consider the impact of computational practices on our engagement with the environment. Central to Helen’s work is the consideration of co-research, participation and environmental practices. In fact, her practice often emerges as workshops, collaborative events and computational art. She is the co-editor of Data Browser 06: Executing Practices (Autonomedia, NY,2017).
Since 2013, Helen has been a member of the Citizen Sense project which is funded by the European Research Council. She has played a collaborative role in the development of innovative creative methods that use physical computing and sensing technologies to think through and develop new theories of citizen sensing.
