Anette Vandsø

I hold a PhD in Aesthetics and Culture (2010) and I am part of the Danish Counsil for Independent Research's Sapere Aude Elite Research-program.

MY RESEARCH_ Broadly speaking my work focuses on the relation between contemporary art, technology and culture; on how new technologies makes room for new practices of cultural memory, on how digital climate data changes our relation to nature, or how digital aesthetics fundamentally changes the conditions of perception. I have mainly worked with audio culture, transmissional media and digital aesthetics and culture. In all cases I explore what it means to a technical being.

In my current research project_THE GARDEN AESTHETIC RECONFIGURATIONS OF NATURE I collaborate with ARoS, Aarhus art Museum, in exploring our changing relation to nature, and how the ways we haven given shape to nature in art, gardens and food have expressed who 'we' are - our worldviews and self perceptions. I also explore what aesthetic representations are needed in order to engage the civic society and the politicians in the pressing environmental issues. 

I have published a number of articles and book chapters latest in the Routledge book More Than Pretty picture, in MIT-press' Leonardo Online and in Organised Sound. 

My research takes place_within the Nordic Network for Resreach on Sound Art, which I initiated in 2013, Center for Sound Studies (AU), the research program in Environmental Humanities (AU) and I am loosely affiliated with AURA (AU).

I have taught courses_at Aarhus University since 2003 covering a broad range of disciplines within Aesthetic, Cultural and media theory as well as musicology and sound studies.
