Dominique Cro is a new media artist living and working in London. Cro utilises the concept of time travel to observe phenomena that continue to change the course of humankind, such as digitisation and capitalism. The lens in which she approaches these themes is influenced by Donna Haraway’s theory - the Chthulucene, which poses making-with instead of self-making, and centres interspecies collaboration with the hope of creating a more habitable future. Cro works in CGI animation, video, installation, sculpture, game design and photography. Her practice combines documentary of the current socio-ecological environment with speculative fiction. She applies worldbuilding as a tool to explore alternative realities, with a focus on more-than-human perspectives. 

 

Cro’s recent works centre symbiosis and interactivity. For example she is currently developing a video game installation, which explores the mutually beneficial relationship between termites and Termitomyces fungus. The player navigates the game as a termite, whilst the screen is installed within a termite mound sculpture. Cro encourages education through audience participation to promote inter-species care. Furthermore, Cro creates functional artworks which support the survival of other organisms, such as Bee House, which is an outdoor sculpture designed to accommodate solitary bees with nesting holes. 

 

Cro is currently studying an MA in Contemporary Art at RCA. Recent exhibitions include Tate, Camden Art Centre, Genesis Cinema, arebyte Gallery, Ridley Road Market Bar and The Photographers’ Gallery.
