Julie is an artist whose practice is informed by social encounter and intervention. Her work investigates memory, gesture and narrative in relation to physical environment. Using film/video, mobile technologies, database and interactive formats to document and present the material. Sometimes recording just a brief moment captured between strangers and at other times building a relationship with multiple participants over a sustained period of time, her work explores new models of collaboration and expanded authorship through themes of subjectivity and difference. For more information, see the artist's website at julie9.org.

Julie has exhibited and screened work extensively receiving a number of awards including an AHRB research award and an Erasmus Scholarship. Previous work has been commissioned by The Arts Council of England, NESTA, The BFI, The Institute of Contemporary Art, BAA and the National Portrait Gallery.

Julie is in residence at LAP whilst working with Adobe/Macromedia research labs in San Francisco as part of - Interact -an Arts Council of England initiative to develop creative exchange between artists and industry.
