Tracy Cornish


Tracy Cornish is an Australian artist and researcher with a Doctorate of Philosophy by Research in Visual Art. She is currently a Research Scholar at the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts at the University of California, San Diego and an adjunct professor in digital cinema and new media at the University of California, San Diego.


Her work explores complex systems in information culture by interweaving theoretical critique and digital media into an experimental visual arts practice. Recent artwork employs Experimental Digital Cinema, Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality and Alternate Reality Games as platforms for exploring new forms of audience interaction, intervention and participatory culture. Her ongoing research into glitches explores the potential for these random and unpredictable errors to be employed as an entry point into a critique of post-digital culture.


Her work has been exhibited in Australia, the United States and Europe. Recent exhibitions include Transmediale 2012, Berlin; Art, Pattern and Complexity, RIAUS, Australia;  Out of the Box, San Francisco and Local Art, San Diego.
