Research projects

Gail Wight believes that “by engaging and teasing out the irrational, the irreverent, and the unreasonable aspects of communication, we can begin to discover ways of interacting that lie outside familiar territory and broaden our conception of understanding.

"In particular, our attempts to communicate with machines and other animals offer valuable insights into our assumptions about this interchange.

“Visual art has offered me a playful way to explore ways in which we interact within these vastly dissimilar realms, and I attempt to situate these engagements within a history of science”.
