Taken these bird cages out of circulation- going to work on them for my utopian project – The Museum of Forgotten Objects. Envisaging a world that no longer understands what these were used for.
I’ve decided to release my PhD. It’s available through Minerva:
Quite thrilled to be included in the line up for WEAD’s online exhibition feminist tEChnOart, thanks to curator/artist Isabella La Rocca.

Making plasticine moulds for latex fabric samples. work in progress for large scale sculpture installation linking the dairy industry to biotechnology.
The program is out, the book ‘animaladies’ is printed and ready to be launched at Animaladies II. I’m really looking forward to speaking about the developments in my work – ‘bloodlines: tracing paths from bodies to biotechnologies’.
It’s an amazing line up and I’m really proud to be an invited speaker among these scholars.
A short artist profile on my work ‘Skin and flesh’ features in Matter Matters: Surfaces, Antennae The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture, issue no. 43. Here’s some screen shots – the article can be freely downloaded here http://www.antennae.org.uk/
First work in progress test casts. As part of my new propositional sculpture installation bloodlines – I’m starting to test out various molds for swatches of fanciful ‘skins’. These ones feature suckers, valves and scales. The suckers casts are double-dipping for my new research into octopuses, using the teats/nipple molds from boobscape to create the mold (I have some larger ones in progress).
