Areas of Research/Artistic FocusFor her Ph.D. research, Dr. Eber explored the art and aesthetics of artistic virtual environments (VE), especially the learning and creative process for artists involved with making them. Her MFA research included alternative ways of digital image capture and representation.
Dr. Eber continues to research the creative and aesthetic aspects of artistic VEs and is currently involved with an art and computer science collaboration that is investigating these questions. Her other research includes perception and the creative process surrounding other digital media. She has presented much of this work at national and international conferences and has many publications in national and international journals.
Dr. Eber's artistic endeavors include VE art works, imaging, and interactive installations. Her latest work deals with issues surrounding embodiment and femininity. She shows her work at numerous national and regional exhibitions.
