Pat Naldi is an artist and researcher primarily working within a site-specific media practice. Her projects involve a constant preoccupation with the geopolitical concerns of mapping in its broadest terms, addressing notions of site, space, vision, landscape, identity, and the development and subsequent use of modern technologies.
Research and issue based, Pat Naldi's projects utilise and embrace broadcast technologies, outdoor projections, video, sound, photography, telematics, website projects, live events and publications to infiltrate extended geographic spaces. Ideas are informed and developed through interdisciplinary research, collaborative dialogue, enquiry, engagement and in consultation with others. In the past this has involved collaborating with geographers, cartographers, Police Departments, opera singers, and bell ringers.
Pat Naldi's works have been exhibited nationally and internationally such as in 'A Century of Artists’ Film in Britain', Tate Britain, 'CTRL [SPACE]', ZKM Center for Art & Media, Karlsruhe and 'ISEA 2004', Baltic Sea Ferry. Fellowships and residencies include the Arts Council England Helen Chadwick Senior Research Fellowship, a Media Arts Residency at The Banff Centre, Canada, and an ACME Firestation residency, London.
Current research examines the impact of new technologies’ formulation and representation of a new global cultural space on our perceptive experience and the way we relate to place.
