Jacqui Mills is an emerging video and installation artist primarily interested in exploring theories of the gaze, and human interaction with the visual and virtual environments. A graduate from the Eora Centre for Visual and Performing Arts in Theatre, Performance and Practise (2006), and Screen (2007), Jacqui looks forward to completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours in 2013. Jacqui’s debut in video for theatre was in 2010, as the Audio/Visual artist for the Eora Centre’s graduating Music Theatre production, The Promise. Her body of work, Gaze (2010), explores the female body and the nature of surveillance culture, using interactive technologies, installation, sound, and performance. Her other audio/visual works from 2009 to 2012 include Liminal (Kudos Gallery), Transcendent Space, Doppelganger (Cofa Space), Universals (Sedition Gallery), and Intertwined: A Virtual Lover (Breathing Pop-Up Gallery - New Performance Art Festival Turku, Finland). Jacqui has previously engaged in collaborative work with Berlin based painter and installation artist Martin Püschel, creating works such as Distant Memories (ATVP Gallery) and Dispiteous Opera. Jacqui's recent artistic endeavours include working as a media artist and set designer for performance, for Bully Beef Stew, commissioned by PACT Centre for Emerging Artists, and Directed by Andrea James.
