Tegan Bristow is an Interactive Media Artist and Lecturer at the Digital Arts Division of the Wits School of the Arts, in Johannesburg South Africa. Bristow work is either arts, technology or development orientated.
South Africa and the rest of Africa are an up and coming site for the technology arts. So outside of lecturing Bristow spends time helping develop and encourage a local technology arts scene. Often this means helping someone make something work, but it also means research and project development.
Bristow is writing her PhD through the Plantery Collegium at Plymouth University. This research will be taking place within the continent – on Technology Arts & Culture Practice in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Senegal.
