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, interactive media, and installation, Gan makes time machines to explore historical materialisms and coordinations that emerge between species, landscapes, and machines, with a particular interest in plant life.

Current transdisciplinary projects include co-curating an artscience exhibition, DUMP! Multispecies Making and Unmaking (2015, Kunsthal Aarhus); writing a print- and web-based monograph on multiple temporalities that emerge around the cultivation of rice; and co-editing an anthology, Arts of Living on a Damaged Planet: Stories from the Anthropocene (UMP, 2017).

Gan is art director of Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene (AURA) and a research fellow at the Department of Anthropology, Aarhus University (Denmark).
