Michelle Teran is a Canadian-born artist whose practice explores media, performance and the urban environment. Her work critically engages media, connectivity and perception in the city. Her performances and installations repurpose the language of surveillance, cartography and social networks to construct unique scenarios that call conventional power and social relations into question. Michelle Teran was research fellow at the Bergen Academy of Art and Design (KHIB) where she is carrying out post-graduate studies within the Norwegian Artistic Research Fellowship Programme, from 2010-2014. 
She is the winner of the Transmediale Award, the Turku2011 Digital Media & Art Grand Prix Award, Prix Ars Electronica honorary mention (2005, 2010) and the  Vida 8.0 Art & Artificial Life International Competition (Madrid). She lives and works in Berlin.

A selection of her artistic works can be found on the artistic projects page.
