I work cross-discipline, creatively and collaboratively, taking inspiration from scientific practice that embraces concepts of data, code, mutable materials, rekindled history, technology and environmental concerns and rephrases them from an art perspective. Projection, sound, video installation, light, sensors, circuit design and sculpture is my current media of choice. I work with scientists, dancers, composers, sculptors, performers and sound and lighting designers and/or community groups to make work that is tangible, surprising, relevant and inclusive.


Diana Scarborough is an artist-engineer whose collaborative practice is inherently cross discipline with a technology and contextual bias. She takes her inspiration from research and science, working with world leaders in the fields of astronomy nano- biotechnology materials and space weather data with an eco-focus. Her interest lies in revealing  beauty, playfulness, emotion and meaning in the science and make it present as art using film, sound, live performance projection combined with traditional fine art practices. Overlays of codes and text in plays with the boundaries of perception at the point where pattern becomes decoded to give meaning or not!
