Dr Hélène Frichot is a senior lecturer in the School of Architecture ad Design, RMIT University. Her research examines the transdisciplinary field between architecture and philosophy (while her first discipline is architecture, she holds a PhD in philosophy from the University of Sydney). With Esther Anatolitis (CEO Melbourne Fringe) she has co-curated the Architecture + Philosophy Public Lecture Series since 2005 (http://architecture.testpattern.com.au). Hélène’s research draws predominantly on the philosophical work of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, alongside other poststructuralist thinkers. Her published research has ranged widely from commentary on the ethico-aesthetics of contemporary digital architecture operating within the new biotechnological paradigm, to the role of emerging participatory and relational practices in the arts, including critical and creative spatial practices.
