About me

Nicola Plant is a movement artist, coder and researcher about to finish a PhD in Media Art and Technology at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary University of London. Nicolas research interests are human movement and expression, embodiment, intersubjectivity and the vicarious experience of empathy. Nicola’s research asks: What qualities of movement convey the intangible aspects of human experience? What does it mean to be embodied? How can technology augment or embody the experience of embodiment? Specialising in motion capture, she makes movement-based interactive installations and experiences. Her work has been presented at exhibitions and conferences worldwide. She has over 6+ years of experience in peer-to-peer computing teaching and leading creative coding workshops.
