Born in the UK, Rebecca Locke is based in New York City which has proved formative in the development of her installation art, film, photographic, sound and performance-based artwork. She is a graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London, and has studied at the International Center of Photography and the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She became a visiting fellow within the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR), Goldsmiths, University of London to develop the City to Sea Project, and was an inaugural member of the Association of Urban Photographers. 
The City to Sea Project developed from Rebecca's practice, specifically her work based on her hometown, the seaside town of Bognor Regis, UK. The project developed in 2013 in collaboration with Magnum Photos' Peter Marlow for a workshop series at the renowned seaside holiday camp Butlins, and a digital exhibition at Urban Encounters, Tate Britain. City to Sea further developed with the ongoing Coney Island Project, exploring Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York and culminating with a New York City-based exhibition. 
Rebecca has exhibited internationally, including the Lab Film Festival, London; Visual Urbanism: Perspectives on Contemporary Research, The British Library, London; Festival de la Imagen, Manizales, Columbia and the first Bienal de Fotografía, Lima, Peru, which featured the artist's video and sound series Lugares qui fui and Wilder's Car. The artist's most recent work includes sister, and the self-portrait and performance-based series, we are paper, we are celluloid, we are digital, exploring narrative identity and female role models. Works in progress include the video and sound project, E pluribus unum.
