    Media artist Linda Dement participated in the second ISEA in 1990 (SISEA). Originally a photographer, her digital practice spans the programmed, performative, textual and virtual. Her work deals with issues of disturbance, commingling psycho-sexual corporeality and the digital and electronic, giving form to the difficult territory of the unbearable and conflicted.


    Linda De­ment is a Syd­ney (Australia) based artist who has worked in arts com­put­ing since the late ‘80s, with a back­ground in pho­tog­ra­phy, film, and video. She works with is­sues of dis­tur­bance, com­min­gling psy­cho sex­ual vi­o­lent cor­po­re­al­ity with the dig­i­tal and elec­tronic. Her in­ter­ac­tive and still image work has been widely ex­hib­ited in­ter­na­tion­ally and lo­cally, in­clud­ing at the In­sti­tute of Con­tem­po­rary Art in Lon­don, Ars Elec­tron­ica in Aus­tria, the In­ter­na­tional Sym­posia of Elec­tronic Art in Syd­ney and Mon­treal and the Im­pakt Media Arts Fes­ti­val in Eu­rope. She is twice win­ner of the Aus­tralian Na­tional Dig­i­tal Art Award (the Har­ries), has been awarded a New Media Arts Fel­low­ship by the Aus­tralia Coun­cil for the Arts. She is a mem­ber of the col­lab­o­ra­tive groups In Se­r­ial and Bump Pro­jects.  “De­ment’s gift is to turn poly­mor­phous per­ver­sity to aes­thetic ends, let it run free and enjoy it­self. The sa­cred and the sav­age, sex­u­al­ity and abuse, are her pri­vate square of op­po­si­tion.”_George Alexan­der.


    Linda Dement has a background in fine art photography and has been working with computers since 1989. She completed a Master’s degree in 1993 and is currently lecturing in multimedia computing in Sydney (Australia).
