Maile Colbert is an intermedia artist with a focus on sound and video. She is currently a PhD Research Fellow in Artistic Studies with a concentration on sound studies, sound design in time-based media, and soundscape ecology at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas, through the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, and a visiting lecturer at the Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto. Her current practice and research project is titled, Wayback Sound Machine: Sound through time, space, and place, and asks what we might gather from sounding the past.
Upcoming projects: Sound design for filmmaker Irene Lusztig's Yours In Sisterhood, which applied some of my new research and methodologies in sonic representation of time, space, and place. I also will be working at the end of the month in Denmark as part of that Sounding Bodies project!
