    Elke Reinhuber, PhD, Assistant Professor – Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). The German media artist, researcher and educator teaches currently at the School of Art, Design and Media at NTU Singapore as Assistant Professor for Expanded Photography. She holds a PhD from COFA/UNSW, Sydney for her exploration on choice, decision making and counterfactual thinking in media arts. Her interest in immersive representations of architectural cultural heritage via digital media started in the early days of laser scanning and panoramic imaging with QuickTime VR for web and interactive museum installations. Projects reaching from early Coptic to medieval and renaissance churches in Egypt, Germany or Mexico were a starting point for her artworks which add a narrative to historical or architecturally relevant sites. Her most recent pieces are closely connected to the rapidly changing city state of Singapore, where her award-winning stereoscopic video “Venomenon” was realized. Her artistic research was presented internationally, at conferences, exhibitions, group shows, festivals and biennials.


    Elke Reinhuber is not your average artist, because she became a specialist on choice, decision making and counterfactual thoughts in media arts. As a decidophobic in her own life, she explores in particular alternative layers of the here and now with immersive environments and expanded photography.

    Her most recent projects include the 360° Video Secret Detours, offering a choice of viewing directions to the audience, VENOMENON – a stereoscopic video-installation based on the multiple interpretations of a decisive moment in mythology, a visualisation of the unseen with the macroscopic images of Face Value, enhanced with Augmented Reality and the exploration of an alternative path of life with her ongoing performative project The Urban Beautician.
