As a multimedia artist with a background in engineering, my work highlights our relationship with earth, the cosmos and the nanoscale. Collaborating with scientists, and creatives I explore ideas creatively through sonification, visualisation, performance and installation, looking to build fresh connections between art and science. My art is characterised by beauty, metaphor and the experiential. I am co-founder of the international multi-disciplinary group ‘Sounds of Space Project’ and an artist-in-residence at Fruk Lab, (University of Cambridge). I use art and collaboration process as a catalyst to ‘elicit and initiate new thinking processes’ about caring for our planet.
BIO-NANO – MAKING THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE: As Artist-In Residence with Fruk Lab, I work directly with scientists to understand the context of their research trajectory. That comes with true understanding as I am also an engineer. Fascinated by processes, scale, beauty and possibilities of their research, I create art that brings narrative, beauty and new audiences into this invisible scientific world. Recent work includes the film ‘Down a Rabbit Hole’ currently selected for a curated exhibition ‘GUI/GOOEY’ and the ‘Invisible Drawing’ Event for the Cambridge Festival.
SOUNDS OF SPACE PROJECT: An art-science – music collaboration with British Antarctic Survey space weather scientist N.Meredith and composer K.Cunio (Australian National University) to bring new meanings to space ‘sounds’ through events, films, publications, performances and albums. They use space weather ‘data as audio’ from earth, our solar system and galactic as inspiration. The latest release is our album ‘Sunconscious’ and T-Shirt designs as ‘sound art’.
