Gabriella Warren-Smith is an independent curator based in Liverpool, whose research investigates the relationship between digital culture and society. She explores these subjects through art, science and digital culture, and is particularly interested in the theme of attention, perception and neuroscience.
Gabriella was recently awarded the Developing Your Creative Practice fund from Arts Council England, enabling her to develop her research and deliver Phase 2 of her project Cognitive Sensations.
Cognitive Sensations is a dedicated platform that investigates the impact of the digital age on human behaviour, culture and society. As part of the project, Gabriella has delivered five panel discussions, an exhibition, and the commissioning of a new artwork by artist Marcos Lutyens and neuroscientist Richard Cytowic. Key delivery partners included THECUBE in London, and FACT in Liverpool. She is the Editor of the project blog, with contributors spanning scientists, educators, cultural theorists, artists and creative practitioners, reflecting the relevance of these issues across different disciplines.
