Chris Henschke is an artist who works with digital and analogue media, sound and light, and high-energy physics. For the last two decades, he has been exhibiting around Australia and internationally.
A key component of his practice is in interdisciplinary and collaborative projects, and he has undertaken a variety of art residencies, including an online artist residency at the National Gallery of Australia, 2004; an Asialink residency, 2007; and two residencies at the Australian Synchrotron, supported by an Arts Victoria Arts Innovation grant in 2008, and the Australia Council for the Arts Synapse program in 2010.
Since 2000, he has developed courses and lectured in time-based and interactive media at RMIT University and Monash University, and the Art vs. Science seminar series at the Victorian College of the Arts Centre for Ideas.
He is currently undertaking a Doctorate of Philosophy at Monash University, which includes on-site work at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), Switzerland, as part of the art@CMS collaboration.
