Pat Naldi is an artist and lecturer at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. Working with video, live events, publications, television and radio broadcasts, installation, photography, website projects, and writing, her works are exhibited internationally such as at Tate Britain, International Rome Film Festival, ZKM Center for Art & Media (Karlsruhe) NGBK (Berlin), Performance Space (Sydney), and Kate MacGarry, London.

She has held a number of research fellowships such as at the British School at Rome and Oxford University, and University of Western Sydney. Pat was awarded a PhD from Central Saint Martins (UAL) for her thesis that developed a critical understanding of the ‘view’ as a historicised and contemporary socio-political mediation. She speaks regularly at conferences on the socio-political, spatial, and image construction and effects of urban/land/scapes, and surveillance practices - most recently at Tallin and Tartu Universities, Estonia, Tate Liverpool, and University of Turku, Finland. Pat lives and works in London.
