Andrew Burrell is a practice-based researcher and educator exploring virtual and digitally mediated environments as a site for the construction, experience and exploration of memory as narrative. Their ongoing research investigates the relationship between imagined and remembered narrative and how the multi-layered biological and technological encoding of human subjectivity may be portrayed within, and inform the design of, virtual environments. Andrew's networked projects in virtual and augmented environments have received international recognition. Andrew uses creative practice to research and understand the complexities of emerging and speculative technologies and is particularly interested in how these are implicated in more-than-human ecologies. This is exemplified in the current and ongoing series of projects—"overGround:underStory".
Recent works include co-authorship of "The Urban Filed Naturalist's Guide to the Creatures in Your Neighborhood", Amala Groom X Andrew Burrell - "can't buy me love", and a collaboration with Agatha Gothe-Snape, for The National "Every Act of Reading Performs the Work" (funded via create NSW 360 Vision initiative). Andrew is a senior lecturer in Visual Communication and a co-founder of the Visual Knowledges Critical Technologies Lab at the University of Technology Sydney.
