Katy Connor (1973) graduated from the Centre for Cultural Studies at Birmingham University (1994) and gained her MA in Contemporary Arts Practice from Dartington College of Arts (2009). She currently lives in Bristol and has been at Spike Island since 2010.
Connor's practice explores how media technologies infuse our senses, frame our perception and structure our contemporary view. She says about her work, "I am interested in the capacity of the moving image to visualise patterns of thought and physical sensation - especially those at the edge of articulation, on the periphery of vision, behind closed eyes."
Recent solo shows include Permanent Gallery, Brighton (2011) and Plymouth Arts Centre (2011) and group shows in Utrecht (2011) Berlin (2010) and London (MRA Video Salon, 2010). Connor is a PhD candidate at the Centre for Experimental Media Research, Bournemouth University.
