MFA, Digital Art & New Media; Ph.D History of Consciousness
Working in the kitchen, Lindsay Kelley's art practice and scholarship explore how the experience of eating changes when technologies are being eaten. Her first book is Bioart Kitchen: Art, Feminism and Technoscience (London: IB Tauris, 2016). Bioart Kitchen emerges from her work at the University of California Santa Cruz (Ph.D in the History of Consciousness and MFA in Digital Art and New Media). Her published work can be found in journals including parallax, Transgender Studies Quarterly, Angelaki, and Environmental Humanities. Kelley is a lecturer at UNSW Sydney in the faculty of Art & Design as well as Honorary Research Fellow, Department of Gender and Cultural Studies, the School of Philosophical and Historical Enquiry, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, in association with Sydney Environment Institute, the University of Sydney. She is the recipient of an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award.
I have supervised research projects that include painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, installation, ceramics, aquaculture, bioart, and experimental video. I am interested in supervising candidates whose research engages art practice and critical theory at once. Although my students and I share an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge making more than any particular form or content, I am best able to support candidates whose work attends to food studies, animal studies, feminist theory, and performance.
