Erin Siddall

Erin Siddall is a Visual Artist who works primarily with film, video, photography and installation which interrogates the viewer into thinking about looking rather than what they are looking at.  Her work investigates fraught interactions between the body and machines that mediate or alter perception. Siddall’s work creates a blurred overlap of digital and analog interfaces revealing the uneasy space between the body and apparatuses.  She further researches corporeal experiences of media, which includes the problem of how archival or real-world objects speak when translated through these interfaces. 

Siddall is an outgoing Master of Fine Arts candidate at the University of British Columbia, and holds a Bachelor of Media Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (2011). Siddall has screened and shown galleries, festivals and galleries such as Access Gallery, Satellite Gallery, The Helen and Morris Belkin Art Gallery, Your Kontinent Media Arts Festival, Winsor Gallery, and the Burrard Art Foundation Studio.  An upcoming public work for Capture Festival 2016 Burrard Inlet Big Camera is a large scale Camera Obscura which explores inconsistencies and vagaries in the nature of seeing itself
