I have always been interested in what is happening inside the body as well as how it looks on the outside, and since 2013 I have been consulting different scientists from St Andrews University, who have kindly helped me in developing my practice in this area.
In 2016/17 I was involved in the Chrysalis project, which explored how women are working in science today, and any challenges or barriers they may be facing. For me, the project culminated in a body of work based on my reflections at the Byre Theatre in St Andrews. Some of this work was then included in the Wellcome Image Library and another piece won a Wellcome Image Award.
2018 – Following on from the success of the Chrysalis project, I am currently developing a new project with the help of the University – again informed by science and one which will explore the concept of the brain as a ‘community’. Through art, dance, and community involvement, I will be collaborating with researchers from the School of Medical and Biological Sciences at St Andrews University, professional dancers, and the wider community of Fife. More information will be added to my ‘News’ page as things develop – feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in this!
