portrait exploring researchers role

Ruth is a Sensory Anthropologist who works in different mediums to explore the experiences and expressions of people's everyday lives.  Ruth currently works at Massey University in New Zealand and is interested in the possibilities of technology both to do and 'write-up' research.  Ruth is interested in interior dialogue, memory, imagination, bodily perception, embodied knowledge and silences, and uses visual, sensory and bodily perception within her collaborative arts practice. Her work centers around a multi-layered multi-media approach to research through the use of experimental research methods. Her practice focuses on embodied knowing using a multi-media approach including digital animation, sculpture, soundscapes, experimental film and digital collage.
