ABOUT

ELAINE GAN is interested in mapping worlds otherwise. Her interdisciplinary practice combines methods from art, science, and environmental humanities to study the timing and temporal logic of more-than-human socialities. Through writing, sketching, interactive web, and installation, Gan makes speculative clocks and diagrams to explore collective rhythms and disruptions that emerge between species, landscapes, and machines.

Current interdisciplinary projects include co-curating an artscience exhibition, DUMP! Multispecies Making and Unmaking (2015, Kunsthal Aarhus); mapping the differential times of rice; and co-editing an anthology, Arts of Living on a Damaged Planet: Stories from the Anthropocene (forthcoming, Island Press).

Gan is art director of Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene (AURA) and a fellow in Architecture & Environmental Structures of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA). Doctoral research at University of California, Santa Cruz seeks to articulate the timing of relations that materialize contingently as economies and ecologies —— multispecies technologies that coordinate, conjugate, and concrete into histories and subjectivities.
