As a new media and interdisciplinary artist, Vivian Charlesworth creates interactive narrative environments that allow for a physical interplay between the viewer and the artwork. Each space fosters the sensation of stepping into the middle of a story, and includes media in the form of video, audio, electronics and/or projection. The narrative in each space is fragmented, where gaps between the viewer’s experience and the space’s referents foster a sense of friction.

Charlesworth’s artworks are the result of an intense research and writing-based process in which she analyzes gathered field recordings, notes and archival material. This research is composited together to form a semi-fictional written account that is then translated again into a physical installation.  In each of her artworks, Charlesworth’s aim is to reach both forward and backward in time to investigate how technology is embedded in our cultural mythology.
