ART-SCIENCE PROJECTS

ARTIST BIO

As a multimedia artist with a background in engineering, my practice highlights our relationships with earth, the cosmos and the nanoscale. Data as audio, scale, time, climate change and technology are core themes. I work with experiential palettes of video, sound, installation and performance to establish fresh connections across the disciplines. Collaborative methodologies, exploratory methods and art outcomes become the catalyst ‘to elicit and initiate new thinking processes’ for public audiences and project participants. I am co-founder and artist of the multi-disciplinary group ‘Sounds of Space Project’ (British Antarctic Survey) and artist-in-residence at the Dept of Chem. Eng. & Biotech, Cambridge University.

Nature of Observation I - as prehistoric, present and future time
Nature of Observation II - as 2m x2m patches (artist: R. Bray)

These two self-directed year long projects on the ‘Nature of Observation’ are now closed. Details to be added to my site soon.

As Artist-In-Residence with Fruk Lab,participated in  their summer research science retreat (Sep 2023). Listen to me in NATURE podcasts; about artist-scientist collaborations or luminous jelly with chat GPT! (see blog posts for links)

For Cambridge Festival in March 2024, I created the video component for the multimedia performances ‘Soothe’ by Infusion Physical Theatre, that links brain biochemistry with dance.

As Sounds of Space Project, my art-science-music collaboration with space weather scientist N. Meredith (British Antarctic Survey) and Australian composer K. Cunio, we bring new meanings to space ‘sounds’ through events, films, publications, performances, albums and clothing. Space weather ‘data as audio’ from earth to beyond the galaxy is our inspiration. We just released our 4th album ‘In Aurora’s Garden‘.

We feature in the art-science publication ‘Antarktikos #2 Light and Shadow‘ by artist Esther Kokmeijer. Dedicated to the fragile and beautiful Antarctica, it is a privilege to be selected.
