Heidi May is an interdisciplinary artist and educator whose work examines visual language systems of contemporary culture. She works in two-dimensional and multimedia forms, examining the personal relationships we have with media and the resulting effects on identity.
Heidi completed her MFA at the University of British Columbia and is currently pursuing a PhD, examining the relationship between networked art practices and contemporary art pedagogy. Heidi has exhibited artwork in Canada, published writing in leading art magazines and has presented papers in Canada, the United States, and Italy. She has been an instructor at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver since 2002 and has also taught at Langara College, Simon Fraser University and UBC. Her experience with online curriculum at Emily Carr University of Art + Design has inspired her to research the philosophy of internet technologies through both visual and textual means.
