    Linda Dement has worked in arts computing since the late 1980s, at the intersections of bodies and technologies, code and flesh, dramas of the corporeal and programmed non-human activity.  Her work has been widely exhibited internationally and locally, including at the ICA  London, Ars Electronica, ISEA.


    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).
