She is a post-doctoral fellow in the eGames lab (PRR) research project. Terhi contributes to the Game art and gender equity (GAGE) research initiative created by Drs. Patrícia Gouveia and Luciana Lima.
Terhi employs collaborative artistic and arts-based research to address issues of social justice. She uses web programming to create playful interactive works, and gravitates towards voice, poetry and texts as some of the key elements in her work. Her doctoral thesis – Migration as movement – explored aspects of migratory movement through artistic research. Her recent work Gray hairs plays with the gendered practice of dyeing one’s hair.”
