Alex Murray-Leslie [AU/NO] is Professor of Digital Performance, Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and co-founder of Chicks on Speed (COS). COS was founded 22 years ago by Murray-Leslie and Melissa E. Logan as a collaborative group modelled in many ways on artistic movements framing diverse practices, interventions and experiments, akin to the Bauhaus, the Situationist International, Fluxus or the KLF.  The groups´ work cross-pollinates performance art, teleprovisation, pop music, fashion, film and new musical instrument design. Her collaborative and solo works have been presented internationally across a range of contexts and venues, from major museums, to rock ’n’ roll tours, to global fashion shows. Alex is currently leading a 4 year artistic research grant: RTAI (Real-time Telematic audiovisual improvisation) supported by the Norwegian Artistic Research Program out of Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, Faculty of Architecture and Design, NTNU.
