Courtney Askey is a Leicester based fine artist, musician and curator working in installation, video, digital and sound. She currently studies at De Montfort University where she is completing the final year of her BA in Fine Art. Her work stems from a fascination with the ever-changing world of technology and digital spaces that are now a constant in our lives. Ranging through from the nostalgic tech from her childhood in the early noughties, to the present day in which devices are constantly updated with new exciting possibilities, she explores the developing aesthetic of the internet and online culture. Her work confronts our habitation of digital spaces and engages with debates around identity and the self in relation to online presence. The visual aspects of her video work is deeply intertwined with its accompanying sound due to the artist's background as a musician; her work has previously explored synaesthesia and crossovers of the senses.
