Mapping below the surface

The desire to ‘map’ is at the core of Angela Palmer’s work. Having spent years taking the familiar and peeling back the outer layer, she has explored the human body, and in particular the brain, as well as the animal form, to expose the extraordinary matter lying unseen below the surface.

In this exclusive interview she talks about her ideas and work.
