Vanessa Bartlett

 

Dr. Vanessa Bartlett is interested in ways that curatorial and arts-led research can support inquiry into wellbeing, emotion and affect in a digital age. Her current project explores artists’ responses to ‘persuasive design’ — design techniques used in social and commercial interfaces to encourage consumption or increase time on device.


Vanessa has a track record of scholarly research and practice across digital art, curating, art and science, practice-led research and digitally mediated performance. She has edited two books for award-winning academic publisher Liverpool University Press (UK), the most recent of which was co-edited with neuroscience researcher Henrietta Bowden Jones (OBE). She has been published in Digital Creativity, Leonardo and International of Journal of Performance Art and Digital Media, and twice in proceedings of the International Symposium of Electronic Arts. Her curated exhibitions at major international arts spaces, such as FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), UNSW Galleries and Furtherfield, have been seen by over 40,000 people internationally and have featured in The Guardian, Creative Review and BBC Radio 4.
