Rebecca Najdowski’s research examines the materiality of photomedia and the complicated ways perception of nature and the notion of landscape are entangled with photomedia.
Through artworks that include camera-less analogue photograms, video, sculptural installations, and augmented reality (AR) interventions her work is an inquiry into the connections between obsolete and emerging, analog and digital medias.
Rebecca is a member of the EU funded international research group COST Action on New Materialism led by Associate Professor Iris van der Tuin (Utrecht University). Her creative works and publications connect the fields of environmental aesthetics, media studies, new materialism, and visual art. Rebecca was a Fulbright Fellow to Brazil and was the first Artist Fellow at the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona, where her work is part of the collection.
Rebecca’s artworks have been exhibited internationally, recently at FORMAT Festival in Derby, UK and Athens Digital Art Festival in Greece. Rebecca has been an artist-in-residence at the Institute for Electronic Art at Alfred University, New York, and at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California and her writing on art has appeared in ArtPractical.com, DailyServing.com, DaWire.com, and KQED.org.
