About Me

Geistė Marija Kinčinaitytė is a Lithuanian artist and a doctoral candidate. She holds a BA in Media and Communications and an MA in Film and Screen Studies from Goldsmiths, University of London. Alongside her research interests, Geistė also engages with her own photographic and moving image practice, which contributes to her approach to research as a form of embodied knowledge.

Research

Geistė’s research project Investigating the Corporeal in Artists’ Films and Moving Image Installations focuses on artists’ moving image installations and their capacity for affect and experience. The project seeks to investigate the potential of such installations to function as sites for an experiential critique of the established discourse on contemporary media environments. Geistė works at the intersection of media theory, contemporary art, philosophy and film studies.
