Erin Siddall is a visual artist who works primarily with film, video, photography, and installation—media that prompts the viewer to think about the act of looking rather than what they are looking at. She researches how the body can metaphorically emphasize vision and how embodied knowledge can reveal the complexity of processes in the experience of new media. This includes the problem of where to locate the subject in multiple-screen platforms and how objects speak when remediated through these interfaces.
Having previously worked as an educator, commercial photographer and translator for film and television, Siddall is currently an outgoing Master of Fine Arts candidate at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, and holds a Bachelor of Media Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (2011). She has screened and shown internationally and locally in galleries, artist-run centres, and media and film festivals, including in Vancouver at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Access Gallery, Satellite Gallery, Western Front, Your Kontinent Media Arts Festival, Winsor Gallery, and the Burrard Art Foundation.
