The Skater: Wendy McMurdo Hardback
Wendy McMurdo was born in Edinburgh and studied at Edinburgh College of Art and the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York. She is interested in the ways in which technology influences early learning, and has worked with children in schools. In recent years digital processing has allowed photographers to reach new audiences and invent new worlds through the manipulation of images. In her work, McMurdo has exploited the artistic possibilities offered by scientific progress and raised questions about the effect new virtual technologies have on human beings. In 2015 she was awarded a PhD by the University of Westminster. She lives and works in Edinburgh.
The Skater is based on her exhibition of the same name, a ff30 commission, Ffotogallery, Wales (2009).
