Elena Kendall-Aranda

Artist-in-Residence at Digital Artist Residency

== 1st Dec–31st Dec 2016==

Elena Kendall-Aranda is primarily focused on investigating feminist theories, social biases, Internet culture and mass media practices. Her work addresses issues of identity and embodiment through photography, text, and new technologies. By conjuring narratives that coalesce and collapse, Kendall-Aranda seeks to use online applications that can operate simultaneously in physical and virtual space to create new meaning that makes us reflect about our social-political culture.
The digital residencies provide an online space for artists to develop works, ideas and practices. Digital Artist Residency is an online platform which provides space for digital artists to create and display new artwork. The initiative aims to provide support for artwork created using digital processes, exploring the boundaries of art and technology.

There are over 2.800 villages listed as abandoned in Spain. These crumbling towns are, in a very real sense, visual monuments to a moment in time the rest of the world has long forgotten. During this residency, Kendall-Aranda will play with Google Maps’ Street View features to create an online space where Internet visitors will be able to virtually stroll through these villages amongst recreated ghost inhabitants, and by doing so, provide a new perspective on our collective past and present.
