Rosemary Lee is an artist and scholar whose work considers how current developments in image production fit within larger narratives about art, vision, knowledge, and relations between humans and machines. Informed by the perspective of media archaeology, she seeks to develop a better understanding of how current methods and ideas about art and technology are influenced by those of the past.
Lee’s forthcoming book, Algorithm, Image, Art, considers recent developments in artificial intelligence in relation to to historical tendencies in image production. That work expands on her PhD project, “Machine Learning and Notions of the Image”, looking into how contemporary artists’ approaches to algorithmic media are connected to longer discourse on the mediation of perception.
Rosemary Lee teaches at the University of Porto Faculty of Engineering and has given guest lectures internationally at institutions including Albertay University, the LUCA School of Art, Edinburg University, and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art
