Elke E Reinhuber

Doctor of Philosophy, Assistant Professor – Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)

German media artist, researcher and educator Elke Reinhuber teaches currently at the School of Art, Design and Media at NTU Singapore as Assistant Professor for Expanded Photography. She holds a PhD from COFA/UNSW, Sydney for her exploration on choice, decision making and counterfactual thinking in media arts.

Her interest in immersive representations of architectural cultural heritage via digital media started in the early days of laser scanning and panoramic imaging with QuickTime VR for web and interactive museum installations. Projects reaching from early Coptic to medieval and renaissance churches in Egypt, Germany or Mexico were a starting point for her artworks which add a narrative to historical or architecturally relevant sites. Her most recent pieces are closely connected to the rapidly changing city state of Singapore in which her award-winning stereoscopic video Venomenon was realised as well as the 360° video Secret Detours, the first outcome of her research on capturing the experience of being inside the former Yunnan Garden on NTU campus.

Her artistic research was presented internationally, at conferences, exhibitions, group shows and festivals such as V&A Digital Futures in London, ZKM Centre for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany, Museum für Fotografie, Winterthur, Switzerland and Manifesta Palermo, Italy.
