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

Current interdisciplinary projects include co-curating an artscience exhibition, DUMP! Multispecies Making and Unmaking (2015, Kunsthal Aarhus); researching multispecies histories and temporalities that emerge around the cultivation of rice and fungi; 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 fellow in Architecture & Environmental Structures of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA).
