Sara Heitlinger is an award winning artist, writer and researcher. Her practice involves sonic art, performance, literature and critical design. She uses practice-based research as an ongoing inquiry into the relationship people have with their environment, and the ways they use creativity to survive in crisis situations. Sara has a BSc in Computer Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia. She won a UNESCO Digital Arts Award for her project Privileged Tactics II about environmental sustainability (together with Franc Purg), and won a Time Out Short Story Award. Her work has been shown in exhibitions and festivals around the world, most recently at Exit Art in New York, the European Media Arts Festival in Osnabruck, and the Triennial for Contemporary Slovene Art at the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana. Sara is currently a PhD candidate in Media and Arts Technology, at Queen Mary University of London, where she is researching designing interactive systems to support grassroots urban food growing communities.

My research looks at the intersections between technology, community and sustainability in the context of an urban city farm in east London.
