Henry Lai-Pyne

Henry Lai-Pyne is a Naarm/Melbourne based new-media artist working across moving image, live multi-media performance, game design, and broadcasting. His work centres symbiotic relationships between the human and screen-focused technology and media. Henry’s creative practice often involves ‘kitbashing’, the merging of mixed-medium processes and found matter to create new narrative, symbology, and world-building.

Sarah Aiken

SARAH AIKEN is a Melbourne based teacher and choreographer from Bellingen NSW with an extensive body of work presented nationally and internationally. Solo and collaborative projects investigate assemblage, authorship, scale and the self, looking at the roles of audience, performer, subject and object and connecting tangibly with audiences, to consider performance as a site for empathy & exchange.

Naina Sen

Born and brought up in New Delhi, India, Naina Sen is a Walkley and AACTA nominated filmmaker and video artist. Based on the lands of the Larrakia People in Darwin, Naina has worked extensively with remote Aboriginal communities in North-East Arnhem Land and the Central Desert in the Northern Territory for the last 12 years. Working across documentary, installation and projection, Naina explores gender and cultural identity and equity, privileging First Nations and South East Asian narratives.

Alana Hunt

Alana Hunt makes art and writes and tries to find the most affective ways for this material to move in the world. Working over time across image, word, event, and relationship her work sensitively challenges dominant ideas and histories in the public sphere and in the social space between people.Alana is a non-Indigenous person who has lived on Gija and Miriwoong Countries in north-west Australia for the last 12 years. This, and her long-standing relationship with South Asia (and Kashmir in particular), shapes her examination of the violence that results from the fragility of nations and the aspirations and failures of colonial dreams.​Alana's iterative practice emerges through long term relationships with places and people—most often speaking first with the sphere the work arises from, and then making its way with gradual yet accumulating resonance into the wider world. In this sense, while the ideas and intent may be persistent the form and place of Alana’s practice is not static or singular. From one “body of work” a multiplicity of forms may arise in a multiplicity of contexts.

Tully Arnot

Tully Arnot is one of Australia’s leading visual artists. His work utilises found objects, tech and the manufactured items of modern life to create absurdist sculptures and installations, and is designed to challenge the way we interact with ourselves and technology.Arnot has exhibited across Australia, UK, Germany, Belgium, Italy, China, Russia, and New Zealand. His work has increasingly incorporated video, documentary, performance and experimental media as a means for understanding how technology mediates our relationship with the natural world.Arnot's work addresses the role of automation and simulation, often looking at robotic and less-sentient substitutes for humans and human interactions. Many of his projects investigate innovations in plant robotics, as well as emergent research into plant communication and consciousness.
