bio

t s Beall is a new-media artist based in Glasgow, UK whose current work explores how the camera and digital media have shifted our notions of place, and how landscape is both imaged and imagined by modern technology.

Recent exhibitions include A Stone's Throw Away as part of Atypical Root and Glasgow International (2010), Here Be Dragons at The Colby Museum, Maine, USA (2008), Beyond Visibility as part of Glasgow international (2008), and Untitled Horses at Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2007), the latter two in collaboration with new music composer Mary Bellamy.  Beall’s moving image works have been screened at The Portobello Film Festival in London, as part of the Venice Film Festival, and at Tramway and Emerged in Glasgow.
