Following my undergraduate degree, I had a brief career in arts production, before moving into sustainability via a Masters in Leadership for Sustainable Development. I'm now exploring the space where these two meet, with a focus on interactive art and the ways in which we understand climate change and, more broadly, the anthropocene. I am particularly interested in the use of the arts to inspire, challenge and reframe, and the often oppositional dynamic this may establish between the disciplines. Increasingly, the arts are being thrust forward in the face of environmental challenges, in attempts to stimulate new ways of thinking, disentangle complex messages and inspire action. My research explores the ways in which audiences encounter works of art that engage with ideas of the anthropocene, intentions that sit behind these works, and the epistemic dimensions of such encounters.
