Nicola Morton is an Asian/Australian artist who loves playing with machines and the paranormal. When she was young she would dream she was a steam train. She has a B.Music (Technology) from Qld Conservatorium of Music (2003) and is completing a Master of Fine Arts at Sydney College of Art (2016).
Her processes utilizing DIY, pseudo-scientific and or shamanic practice accomplish cross disciplinary exchange across sound, performance and nature and have culminated in a shortlisting by the 17th VideoBrasil Exhibition for her psychic video project, ‘Remote Viewing Experiment #1.’ She finds states of peace in improvised music, live performance and video making. She is socially inspired by curing stress and artistically by taking viewers and listeners to other worlds. http://nicolaisgreat.com
Her performance work and facilitation (encompassing music and visual art) has received significant support in the form of independent review in Art&Australia, Realtime, Crawlspace, The Wire (UK) and Pipeline (HongKong); plus awards and grants from QMusic, Asialink, Brisbane City Council, Renew Newcastle and Ptarmigan. She is a co-director at EXIST ari and Vice President of not-for-profit, Foundation For Contemporary Music And Culture.
