Sigune Hamann investigates the creative potential of old and new media. This encompasses hybrid media forms including photography, video, sound and performative elements. With the rapid technological developments we are no longer reading images only as forms, as we used to do, but also experiencing them now as events, grouped, fragmented, layered and changing over time. In her research and teaching she explores how we construct images including the changing relationships of stillness and movement, narrative structures and direct address and identity in urban and media environments.
Sigune Hamann has been a lecturer at Camberwell College of Arts since 2002. She has initiated and curated several interdisciplinary projects with the University of the Arts London including the Tate conference Stillness and Movement in 2010 and The changing Perception of Images in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust in 2013/2014.
