Tracy Piper-Wright is an artist, writer and academic working in photography, film and installation.
Her hybrid practice is grounded in process, ‘not-knowing’, embodiment and the everyday. She works mainly with lens based media, incorporating assemblage, print, performance and drawing. Her work is experimental, often using analogue or outdated media, technologies, found objects and images.
Her research investigates the culture of photography, in particular its technological developments and everyday use. Her current research project, In Pursuit of Error, is an ethnographic study of photographic ‘mistakes’ in the work of contemporary photographers and photography culture. The project tests the conventions of photographic representation and what photography is or should be, and proposes an ‘aesthetics of chance’ as a valuable aspect of an embodied artistic practice.
She is Senior Lecturer in Photography at the University of Chester.
