Eccentric Engineering: Thoughts for the Anthropocene

Tega Brain

TEDxSydney 2015 · 21 May 2015

Tega Brain is an artist working at the intersection of art, ecology and engineering. Creating eccentric engineering, her work reimagines quotidian technologies to address and reveal their politics. Her projects have taken the form of site-specific interventions, dysfunctional devices, experimental infrastructures and information representations. They explore the institutions, technologies and interfaces that shape our relationship with environmental systems. Tega is currently a resident at Eyebeam, the leading art and technology center in the United States. She also teaches at the School for Poetic Computation and at the State University of New York. She was recently awarded a Creative Australia Fellowship for early career artists from the Australia Council for the Arts.
