Experimenta Life Forms artist Rebecca Selleck uses her artistic practice to reciprocally investigate and challenge her own perceptions within a culture of conflicting truths. Her work overlays time and place to express the need for human accountability and the painful complexity of animal and environmental ethics in Australia. 

In this online lecture, Rebecca will discuss her recent artworks and the techniques for creating interactive sculptures and installations, which blend animatronics, assemblage, and casting. 

 

Rebecca Selleck’s artwork ‘ ‘Snow Rabbits’ is exhibiting as part of Experimenta Life Forms: International Triennial of Media Art, presenting at The Lock Up (Newcastle, NSW), 10 July – 12 September 2021 and touring nationally until 2024.
