Janine Randerson

Janine Randerson is a New Zealand based media artist. Her art practice includes site-specific installations, 16mm films, experimental video and atmospheric media. A recurring theme in Randerson’s work is the technological mediation in ecological systems with a particular focus on meteorology.

Randerson has exhibited internationally for over a decade. She has collaborated with environmental scientists on residencies and other projects at NIWA in New Zealand, BoM (Bureau of Meteorology) in Melbourne and NERI in Denmark.

She was a founding board member of ADA (Aotearoa Digital art network) and a guest editorial advisor on the climate special issue of MIT’s Leonardo Journal. She is currently on the Board of Artspace Aotearoa.

In 2018 she was one of five artists commissioned by CIRCUIT for Truth or Consequences, curated by Erika Balsom.
