Roslyn Helper is an artist and curator interested in the effects of new technologies on society, culture and politics. Roslyn holds a BA (media communications) from the University of Sydney and an MA in Arts Politics from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She is the current Artistic Director of Electrofringe (http://electrofringe.net) and has curated exhibitions and events including ISEA (2013), This in Not Art (2013), Vivid Ideas (2014) and the Brisbane Powerhouse (2015).
Roslyn is an advocate for experimental technology-based art and sound. Her thinking and practice is inextricably linked to the contemporary environment: the networked society, unbounded freedom of information, free market economies, crowd-sourced cultural capital, and the increasingly blurred online/ offline divide. She is dedicated to promoting and presenting work that illuminates, challenges and furthers us via new platforms of expression.
