Rebecca is a British conceptual artist who works in lens based and optical media, such as stereo photography, photographic phenakistiscopes, and in public art. She has exhibited internationally in London, England, Leiden, The Netherlands, and in New York (where she lived for many years), and San Francisco in the United States. Her practice challenges existing media categories, such as the flat photographic image on the wall. An interest in philosophy and theory influence the conception and themes contained within the works, which are concerned with issues of perception, the politics of representation, and the intersection between language and image, public and private.

Rebecca is completing studio art PhD at Chelsea College of Art. Recent research output includes a public art intervention entitled The Public Utteraton Machines (Utteraton.com),installed on pavements in New York's boroughs, as well as photographic works exhibited at The Houston Center for Photography, Houston, TX.

Research interests: Photography Theory, Photographic Rhetorical Forms, Lacanian Psychoanalysis (non-clinical), Social Practice Photography, the role of the artist in society.
