Tega Brain

Country: Australia

Tega Brain is an artist and environmental engineer from Sydney, Australia working at the intersection of art, ecology and engineering.

Her work is a form of eccentric engineering and it reimagines quotidian technologies to address their scope. It takes the form of site specific interventions, dysfunctional devices, experimental infrastructures and information representations (sometimes using underpants).

She is currently a fellow with the Processing Foundation where she is contributing to the p5js project. She is an Assistant Professor of New Media at SUNY Purchase and also works with the School for Poetic Computation. She has been an artist in residence at Eyebeam, New York and at the Environmental Health Clinic at New York University. She has recently exhibited work at Eyebeam, NYC, the Science Gallery, Dublin and at the Australian Centre for Design. In 2013 she was awarded a Creative Australia Fellowship for early career artists from the Australia Council for the Arts.
