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.
