AeroceneSymposium1.jpg

I am a researcher and practitioner studying the intersections of community-based activism; creative practice; and environmental change. In recent years I have collaborated with artists in research on atmospheric politics, elemental aesthetics, and the histories and practices of amateur radio. I have written for a wide variety of journals, print and online publications, and am preparing a new book manuscript provisionally titled Elemental Lures.

During my doctoral studies between 2013-2016 I undertook ethnographic fieldwork at the Studio of Tomás Saraceno in Berlin, where I collaborated on the long-term projects Becoming Aerosolar and Aerocene. Together with Tomás Saraceno, Jol Thomson, Ivana Franke, Alan Prohm and Natalija Miodragovic, I also designed and delivered a new curriculum for creative practice and artistic research at the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany.

I am an active member of the Aerocene community. In addition to launching Aerocene Explorer sculptures with my students, I have been involved in curating Aerocene symposia and workshops at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; 21er Haus, Vienna; the Royal College of Art, London; Lancaster University; Royal Holloway University; and the Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
