Dr Marilyn Allen is an artist, writer, and collaborator:

Collaborations have included performing one half of matthews AND allen and working with Professor Sue Williams on an exploration of gender politics in a contemporary context.

Allen’s most recent work centres on a collaboration with technology and how meaning is distributed between human and digital voices. In a paper published in On_Culture journal, Allen explores the potential for new narrative flows to be produced through anomalies generated between the human voice and computational voice recognition systems. Allen describes this process as enacting ‘word events’ which generate a speculative space for the intensification of language.
