Tina Keane studied fine art and film-making in London. She makes works and installations using film, video and digital technologies and has exhibited widely around the world. As a research fellow at Central Saint Martins College of Art, she has also turned her attention to the internet and is a leader in the field of digital creativity. She has said that art for her 'is about defining many different forms of reality, and this takes many types of vocabulary. Can any single form or combination of forms bring us closer to answering the questions: "Who are we?" and "Why?" '
