RESEARCH + PRACTICE
Yandell Walton is a Melbourne-based artist whose practice encompasses projection, installation, and interactive digital media. Through work that melds architectural space with the projected image, Yandell has become recognised for her projection works that merge the actual and the virtual to investigate notions of impermanence in relation to environmental, social and political issues. In 2005 Yandell completed a Masters of Fine Arts by coursework at RMIT and in 2014 she completed a Masters of Fine Arts by Research at Victorian College of the Arts.
Alongside her creative practice Yandell facilitates community development projects, workshops and masterclasses in projection art, and has collaborated with community groups from refugee backgrounds, indigenous communities and disadvantage youth. Yandell is a board member of The Gertrude Projection Association, and volunteers for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival in many roles, including co-curating the festival in 2014 and 2015 and the newly formed Centre for Projection Art curating art projects.
