Current Artist in Residence at the V&A (2017 / 2018)

Conceptual and data artist Rachel Ara graduated with a Fine Art BA from Goldsmiths College, London, where she won the prestigious Burston award. 

In 2016 she won the International Aesthetica Art Prize for This Much I’m Worth, the self-evaluating artwork. Pulling on her experiences as a computer system designer, the digital sculpture draws on data and complex algorithms to calculate its own value in real time.

Her work is nonconformist with a socio-political edge that often incorporates humour and irony with feminist and queer concerns. 

Recent shows included “Controlled Realities” at Anise Gallery London and V&A Digital Futures. 

Rachel is a 2017/2018 Near Now Fellow – awarded to pioneering artists working in technology.   

She is currently Artist in Residence at the V&A from October 2017 - October 2018 responding to their data.
