Beginnings – an inaugural post to introduce my new work and research.
Just a few short months ago I was astounded and elated to have been awarded a full PhD Studentship in the Digital Humanities at CoDE – the Cultures of the Digital Economy Research Institute. CoDE is a new multidisciplinary department established at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK and I am their first (PhD) research student.

I am an American artist and lecturer – also extensively trained in health sciences (Chinese Medicine and biomedicine) which inform my practice. I work mainly in sound – video installation, performance and writing (both in academic and ‘art writing’ forms) and my current PhD project researches, from a post-feminist point of view, ways to reflect tacit interior bodily experience through making connections between art and science, touch, the body and technology.
My Research Interests:
Performative and site-specific sound art – rhythmic soundscapes using binaural and 3-D sound -art and biomedical interdisciplinary collaboration – eastern and western notions of the body/mind- embodiment and digital media – art practice-as-research.
My project –
Using pulse and pulsation as theme to explore the following:
– Embodied pulse and pulsation through the creation of visual and sonic art works (practiced-based arts research).
– Development of interdisciplinary collaborative projects (both locally and internationally) involving the arts, sciences and the humanities (i.e., art creation in relation to nanotechnology, neuroscience, etc).
This blog commences the charting of my research and exploits as a Digital Humanities researcher at ARU for the next three years.
