As a committed interdisciplinary practitioner with expertise in methodological innovation across art and technology I currently hold the Professorship in Art / Science, situated in Westminster School of Arts and College of Design, Creative and Digital Industries.
I am an artist with a strong interest in the complex threads that link social, political and techno-scientific fields of inquiry. In addition to my expertise as a practice-led research academic in contemporary arts, working as a curator and investigative practitioner, I am fortunate to co-Direct the prestigious research centre CREAM, with Professor May Adadol Ingawanij (Cinematic Arts) from where we coordinate the REF and develop research strategy across Schools. I am a founding member of the collective Ecological Futurisms, a group of staff whose expertise in geopolitical areas of practice is supported by active graduate research. I am also convenor of The Deep Field Project, a research studio that supports critical pedagogy, collaborative methods and projects in interdisciplinary art and the supervision of PhDs.
As an artist with an investigative and experimental practice, I have worked with organisations such as Arts Catalyst (London UK, 2001-19), Center for Land Use Interpretation (USA, 2007-9), Henry Moore Institute (UK 2004-12), Flat Time House (John Latham) and O+I (UK, 2004-), and in residence at institutions ranging from Human Genome Mapping Project to National Institute for Medical Research (98-04).
My work has been exhibited widely in spaces as varied as; Venice Biennale of Architecture (2021), Kunsthalle Trondheim (2020), Royal College of Art (2016), Portikus (2014), Whitechapel Gallery (2014), John Hansard Gallery (2009), Natural History Museum (2003). As former co-founder of art and technology collective Soda (97-02), I worked on technology based installations and artworks at; Moderna Museet (1999), Lux Gallery, Gasworks and Cubitt Gallery (1998) amongst many others.
I also founded and work with the Office of Experiments (est.2004) an artist-led organisation that supports experimental investigations and interpretation of contested landscapes in projects that bring together scientists, academics, architects, and increasingly, more than human perspectives.
I have been on the AHRC Peer Review College since 2012 and recent recipient of UKRI funding as an expert in practice research in art and design.
