Heather Lander graduated from the MFA in 2015 with a distinction (1st class) and the Bram Stoker Medal awarded by the Director of the Art School to one graduating artist. During 2016 she showed video installations with Cryptic Nights at the CCA, Glasgow International with Simon Harlow at The Briggait, and as an invited artist at The Hidden Door Festival in Edinburgh.
Her practice focuses on ideas of magic, the virtual and the ways technology such as virtual reality can, and will, affect our interpretation of reality. Heather is interested in illusion and the idea of presence. She wants her work to stimulate discussions and evoke thoughts of the physical versus the virtual. Most recently she has begun to introduce sound into her installations and this is something she plans to continue experimenting with over the next year. www.hrlander.com
