Rebecca Gamble is an artist, interventionist and creative researcher.  Her work operates in the practical and theoretical sphere of interactivity, bringing into play modes of social exchange, audience engagement, and participatory performance.  Her work is primarily concerned with human interaction and how the etiquettes and rules of a space determine how we behave and relate.  She works in response to site and approaches urban and online spaces as her playground and site; intervening with tactics, actions, and games.

In her current practice-as-research, the convivial mode of hospitality becomes an artistic methodology to activate audiences in participation and radical investigation.  Through a playful, participatory and performative practice she employs tactics to investigate the everyday and to question relationships, between virtual and physical space; between the artist and the audience; between the live event and the document.

Rebecca is currently engaged in a practice-led PhD at Nottingham Trent University and teaches New Media at the University of Worcester.  Since moving to Nottingham, she has collaborated in artist groups, including Institute of Boundary Interactions (formally LAB) and New Research Trajectories on artistic research projects.  From 2008 – 2011 she was a committee member at Surface Gallery and developed their artist studios, project space and first Artist-in-Residence programme, entitled Site&Situ. Rebecca previously completed an MA in Interactive Art and Design at University College Falmouth and a BA (Hons) in Art and Design by Negotiated Study at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design (BIAD) (UCE).

Mariela, video installation exhibited for RE:CALL, Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, Bournville, Birmingham.
