Catherine Weir

Catherine M. Weir (b. 1988, Scotland) is an artist working with photographic and digital media to explore the ways in which our sense of memory, time and place is shaped by evolving technologies. Her work often blends elements of what may broadly be termed analogue and digital practices in an effort to examine the relationship between the two, and to reflect on their distinct material and emotive properties.

Catherine graduated with a BA(Hons) in Photographic and Electronic Media from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen in 2010. Past exhibitions include New Contemporaries 2011 at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh and Futureproof 2010 at StreetLevel Photoworks in Glasgow.

In 2011 she moved to London to study for an MFA in Computational Studio Arts at Goldsmiths, which she will complete in September 2013. Her current research is concerned with the materiality of the photograph and the significance of the index in a digital framework, which she explores by combining photography with digital technologies such as mobile apps and augmented reality.

She is currently a co-director of the Tin Shed Gallery at Goldsmiths, University of London.
