ABOUT

ELAINE GAN is interested in mapping worlds otherwise. Her transdisciplinary practice combines methods from art, science, and digital/environmental humanities to study the timing and temporal coordinations of more-than-human socialities. Through writing, drawing, interactive media, and installation, Gan explores historical materialisms and coordinations that emerge between species, machines, and landscapes, with a particular interest in plants and fungi.

Gan is a Mellon Fellow in Digital Humanities at University of Southern California and is affiliated with Media Arts + Practice, Anthropology, and Visual Studies. She recently co-edited an anthology, Arts of Living on a Damaged Planet: Ghosts and Monsters of the Anthropocene (Minnesota, 2017); convened a seminar series, Feral Technologies for Anthropocene Curriculum on the Technosphere at HKW Berlin (2016-7); and co-curated an artscience exhibition, DUMP! Multispecies Making and Unmaking at Kunsthal Aarhus (2015).

Currently, Gan is working on Time Machines, a book manuscript and digital project about rice assemblages and the multiple temporalities and historical conjunctures that emerge around their cultivation. She is also animating A Fungal Clock, a collaborative web-based narrative about dynamic species coordinations in forest ecologies.
