Christopher Handran is a contemporary artist, writer and researcher based in Brisbane, Australia.

Handran’s practice explores the entanglement of art and science, with a focus on these disciplines’ shared use of technologies to mediate and generate perceptual and phenomenal experience. He recreates apparatuses, from cameras and lenses to spectroscopes and bubble chambers, using contemporary materials and a DIY approach. These idiosyncratic apparatuses inform experiments in photography, installation, immersive  projection, stereoscopy and VR, to foreground the performative qualities of technology and the embodied and perceptual aspects of audience experience. As an artist and writer, Handran’s practice draws on the productive interplay between  practice-led and traditional forms of research, incorporating in-depth historical research and an engagement with philosophies of science and technology.
