About the Artist:
Elke Reinhuber teaches and researches as an assistant professor at Nanyang University in Singapore since July 2014. In 2013, she was awarded a practice-based doctorate degree in media arts at COFA, Sydney, suggesting the term ‘Counterfactualism’ as a new category for the arts and humanities, dealing with the retrospective analysis of turning points in life. Elke Reinhuber is not your average artist, because she has become a specialist on choice, decision making and counterfactual thoughts in media arts, since working on her practice-based PhD. As a decidophobic in her own life, she explores in particular alternative layers of the here and now with immersive environments and expanded photography; currently working on an app for reality augmentation as an artist in residence at ZKM. Her work has been on display in several international museums, galleries or site-specific events.
