ARTIST ENGINEER • SOUNDS OF SPACE

Combining Public Art with Science

About THE ARTIST

I am an artist-engineer working cross-discipline, creatively and collaboratively. I create multimedia artworks taking inspiration from scientific practice that embraces environmental concerns and technology. I work with dancers, musicians and researchers to develop soundscapes, video installations and performances that offer emotional and conceptual perspectives within an art-science framework. This recent project, ‘Sounds of Space’ with British Antarctic Survey (BAS) has received much interest in the art and science fields. Short films will be exhibited at the Venice Biennale this year. There is an opportunity to take this to the Blue Dot Festival in July and develop it further at the Australian National University in August.

Recent Work- 'Sounds of Space'

Working with space-weather scientist Nigel Meredith since 2016, Scarborough explored new ways of visualising data collected in Halley in Antarctica. This has evolved into a multidisclipinary performance using data as audio. Audiences travel from the past (ice core- 200,000 years) and earth to beyond the galaxy using dance, live music, sounds and animations. Her combined background in art and electronic systems engineering is a unique mix.
