About:
Ellen Dahl is a Sydney based, Norwegian born artist working across photography, video, sound and installation. Drawn to the uncanny and ambiguous, she often uses the landscape as an entry point to articulate trepidations around anthropogenic environmental change, and the uncertainties of the ecologies of place and belonging. Ellen is a PhD candidate at the School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania.
