DIANA SCARBOROUGH – CV & PORTFOLIO

ABOUT

I am an artist and electronic engineer working creatively and collaboratively, taking inspiration from leading scientific practice that embraces data, code, and cutting-edge technologies related to environmental concerns. I take current research and produce art to create something with beauty without losing scientific integrity. In my practice I like to create a juxtaposition of analogue, pattern, sound, technology and performance. Along with having this multimedia palette at my fingertips, I also bring curiosity and project expertise to the creation process, producing, directing and delivering ambitious multimedia installations and performances.
