Emerging Ideas

Kon Markogiannis: Mind Patterns

Kon Markogiannis is an artist with an interest in spirituality and the evolution of consciousness. By manipulating the photographic medium he is able to develop a personal and simultaneously transpersonal language which negotiates between subjective art and the photographic document.

James Stone: Poetry in Data

Poetry in Data is an experiment.

At first glance, poetry and data are very different things. They inhabit different worlds and speak different languages. So what happens when they collide? Could they fuse into something interesting?

Joy Peng: Before the Eternal Silence

‘Before the Eternal Silence’ is a time-based installation that uses the past eighteen years of environmental data to explore the belief that the destruction of human habitation is getting worse, and emphasize the interconnected influence between humans and our environment.

Stephen Bennett: Data visualisation and maps

Stephen Bennett’s work explores whether art can bridge the gap between science and public decision-making. Data visualisation and maps are points of departure.

He is currently studying for an MA in Arts and Science at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London

Teresa Chadwick: FUSION – HAKA PIRI

In 2016, Teresa Chadwick presented her first exhibition, ‘Fusion – Haka Piri’, a goldsmith collection inspired on Easter Island archaeology and culture, at Hanga Roa (Easter Island.) The project went on to be shown at the Museo de Artes Decorativas in Santiago, Chile and at the Tate Modern and will be shown at the Chilean Embassy, London in 2017. Currently studying for an MA in Arts and Science at Central Saint Martins, University of Arts, London, in this article she discusses her project which delves into Easter Island’s cultural magic.

Stephen Nowlin: How ArtScience Doubts the Supernatural

This essay introduces two recent exhibitions and examines the origins of ArtScience in relation to the nineteenth century’s transition from representation to abstraction. While that progression was a seminal step in art history, the author proposes that a no less seismic impact resulted from its spatial reorientation – from expressions structured in pictorial imaginary space to those structured in actual, real space. That realignmnt echoed what science had been incrementally doing for four hundred years, by replacing fabricated comprehensions of reality with concrete ones – and in the process, shifting ontological and epistemological dispositions away from the supernatural and toward the natural.

David Buss: Jim Dales – ‘RHL, The Man in the Mirror’

In 2016, Jim Dales’ debut novel, ‘RHL, The Man in the Mirror’, was published, which is based loosely on the Dutch Master, Rembrandt. ‘RHL, The Man in the Mirror’ does not present a flattering portrait of the man whose artistic oeuvre is universally recognised as that of an outstanding master. We observe Dales’ Rembrandt as artist, husband, father, lover, teacher, employer and businessman, a mortal with negative as well as admirable characteristics, a three-dimensional and believable character.

Stephen Magrath: A journey into Sci-Art

Stephen Magrath’s drawings, paintings and prints are inspired by his interest in health and wellbeing and informed by related scientific research. He has degrees in both Social Psychology and Fine Art and has deepened his interest in the interconnectedness of mind and body through collaborations with practitioners and research scientists in the fields of stress management, neuroscience and cognitive psychology.

Claudia Stocker: Vivid Biology

Claudia Stocker is a science artist based in Bristol, UK. Her work focusses on interpreting scientific data and visualising scientific subjects. She is particularly interested in subjects that are too small to see clearly, such as molecular biology, chemical structures and microbes.
