Martine Corompt lectures in Media Arts on hybrid art practices such as Comics for Artists, Temporal Drawing and Experimental Animation at the School of Art RMIT University. She is also undertaking a PhD at VCA Melbourne University titled ‘Forced Perspectives: The analysis and practice of caricature in contemporary artworks’. Her areas of research surround aspects of animation, such as anthropomorphism, caricature and the animate space. Much of her work is collaborative and interdisciplinary, seeking to incorporate sound, space and image together, while also occasionally exploring ideas surrounding the ‘interactive artwork’, highlighting the failings and clichés of interactivity, rather than being seduced by it as a form of liberation. Works such as Dodg’em, 2000 - 2006 an interactive sound installation, with Philip Samartzis, or more recently No Answer 2006, a collaborative public artwork with artist Philip Brophy commissioned by the City of Melbourne are especially mindful of the modulating effects of one medium upon the other, as well as highlighting the more direct relationship between spectator and artwork.
