Polly Stanton is a lecturer in the school of Media and Communication. She teaches and supervises across sound, video and installation practice in the Master of Media program.
Polly’s work investigates the relations between environment, human actions, and land use. Her films and installations focus on extractive zones and contested sites, presenting landscape as a politically charged field of negotiation. Sound also plays a critical role in her work, with listening practices and field recordings engaged with as a means to expand vision and consider the unseen elements of place. Polly’s mode of working is expansive and site based, with her practice intersecting across a range of disciplines from film production, sound design, fieldwork, performance, writing and publication.
Polly’s work is held in a number of private and public collections. Her artwork has been exhibited internationally and she is the recipient of numerous grants and Artist-in-Residence programs.
