Telegenic

Elina Lex is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary researcher and media artist whose work stretches across VR, 360° video, sensory ethnography, interactive documentary and digital archives. Mediating between ethnography and digital art practices, she investigates how emerging new media formats might transform the way cultural information, knowledge, and memory is expressed and exchanged. Working out of public and community interests, her interactive work focuses on questions of place, sensory memory, and the city as archive, creating new kinds of public access and participation for site-specific cultural heritage, educational, and community art experiences.
