Gill Baldwin
In her work, Gill Baldwin studies our relationship with the artificial. Zooming in on technology, machinery, intelligence, and the particularities of on- and offline worlds, Baldwin carefully maps potential repercussions  and consequences of the ever-transforming kinship between humans and (technologic) artificiality; human made objects and phenomena on the verge of becoming autonomous.

Her work was selected to be a part of the 2018 Robot Love exhibition in Eindhoven and at Upominki in Rotterdam. Her research has been recognized by the Piet Zwart Institute Alumni Award and in 2019 she recieved the Nova Scotia Talent Trust Young Artist of Excellence Award. In 2021 she was a V2_Lab for Unstable Media Summer Sessions artist in residence. She is a current member of the Kunstambassade.
