Anna Frew is a Stockholm based researcher whose work explores how the way we tell stories is transforming within digital media. Currently undertaking a PhD remotely at Manchester School of Art, Anna’s design led research questions the essence of what makes a narrative engaging. Her PhD considers ‘Perceptive Media,’ where broadcasts use data about the user and/or their context to tailor a narrative, in real time, in two case studies on prototypes from BBC Research and Development.
Closely linked to her PhD was her role as a Creative Producer and Research Assistant at Abandon Normal Devices and The University of Salford. Here she worked on Project Daedalus to explore the potential of drone technology in cinematic and digital arts contexts. With several years experience working at Manchester School of Art as an Associate Lecturer, Anna is chiefly concerned with what’s next? With her vision firmly faced towards to future of technology and storytelling.
