Dr. Yolande Harris
Yolande Harris is an artist and scholar engaged with sound, its image and its role in relating humans and their technologies to the environment. Her artistic research projects consider techniques of navigation, sound worlds outside the human hearing range, sonification of data, and underwater bioacoustics. They take the form of audio-visual installations and performances, instruments, walks, performative lectures and writings. She weaves together her artwork with her theories of techno-intuition and sonic consciousness, in which expanded forms of awareness emerge through technological media and critical listening techniques.
Her work is presented internationally in the context of visual art exhibitions, music venues and media art festivals and conferences, including MACBA Barcelona, Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, ICA London, Netherlands Media Art Institute Amsterdam, ISEA, Issue Project Room NYC, and Sonic Acts Festival. Yolande holds a Ph.D. from Leiden University (2011) and is currently Artist in Residence at DXARTS University of Washington in Seattle.
