Since the mid 1990’s Beverley Hood has been creating digital art works that interrogate the impact of the virtual on the body, relationships and human experience. She has worked collaboratively on numerous occasions, developing projects involving a range of practitioners, including medical researchers, writers, technologists, dancers and composers.
Her media art projects and performances have been exhibited internationally. Recent presentations include The Edinburgh International Festival (2013), the International Symposium of Electronic Art – ISEADubai2014, the New Technological Art Award 2014 – Update_5, at the Zebrastraat Museum, Ghent, Belgium (2014) and the Edinburgh Art Festival (2016).
Gordon Douglas (b. 1990, Glasgow) is a performer, curator and collaborator currently based in Edinburgh. He graduated from the Environmental Art department at Glasgow School of Art in 2013, where he also attended an exchange semester at CalArts, California. From 2013-15, he served on the Transmission committee, an artist run space in Glasgow, instigating a series of workshops aimed at interrogating the governing documents of the institution. Since then he has organised group projects and events with a diverse array of practitioners including: anthropologists, dancers, designers, fanfiction writers, jewellers, journalists, physicists, post-punk musicians and theatre-makers.
