Yandell Walton is a Melbourne-based artist whose work encompasses projection, installation, and interactive digital media. Through work that melds architectural space with the projected image, Yandell has become recognised for her immersive projection works that merge the actual and the virtual to investigate notions of impermanence in relation to environmental, social and political issues.
Yandell’s work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally in galleries and non-traditional public spaces including Light City Festival Baltimore (2016), Digital Graffiti Florida (2015), Experimenta Speak to Me (Melbourne & Brisbane 2012-14), PUBLIC Festival Perth (2014), Melbourne Festival (2012), VIVID Festival Sydney (2013), ISEA (International Symposium of Electronic Art 2013) and White Night Festival Melbourne (2013/15), amongst others.
Her most recent major solo exhibition in 2019 (Shifting Surrounds) presented 6 site specific installations interrogating the Anthropocene. In 2020 she has been awarded the Philip Hunter Fellowship (Victoria College of the Arts, Melbourne University) to embark on a research investigating ecological shifts in forests in the Eastern region of Australia since the Industrial Revolution to determine the causes inflicted by human impact.
