Urban Projections is the work and collaboration of multimedia artist Rebecca Smith. Fusing hand-crafted art-forms with with digital technologies, her work seeks to surprise and engage audiences with its playful tone and interactivity. Constantly striving and seeking ways to push the boundaries of her discipline, Rebecca creates unique digital experiences.

Rebecca’s work seeks to discover new, and original, ways of presenting digital media for audience interaction, pushing the boundaries of creative possibility and pioneering new approaches to mixed media application. Above all, her work always remains accessible to its audience, regardless of the intricacy of its design.

 

Rebecca’s work has been viewed in prestigious venues throughout the UK and Europe, such as The Saatchi Gallery, Tate St Ives, Nottingham Contemporary, Firstsite, The Wilson and The Royal Albert Hall. However, her work is equally at home on the streets and in unusual outdoor locations.

 

With a heavy influence of street art culture, and love of abandoned sites and objects, she uses forgotten spaces as a canvas for much her work. From 8-storey tower block, to pedestrian underpass or forest location, Rebecca has realised an array of mobile projection systems which further her performance possibilities and allow for truly site specific application.

 

With over fifteen years’ experience as a professional audio-visual performer, Rebecca has lead high quality, cross-boundary projects, workshops, and seminars at both educational institutions and within the community. Sharing her enthusiasm and passion for arts and technology she actively encourages new and creative ways of exchanging new media practice.
