Talks & Seminars

An Artist's Experience of Science: material engagements with people, plants and numbers.

A talk by Artist Jane Prophet.

Bath & NE Somerset
Opening Times
18:00 – 20:00
We are delighted to invite you to a talk by artist Jane Prophet. Hosted in Partnership with the Centre for Cultural and Creative Industries, where Jane will be joining as Co-Director, the talk will introduce her interdisciplinary, collaborative practice that draws on science and technology to explore health and wellbeing.

Jane Prophet is an interdisciplinary visual artist and critical theorist of art, science, and new media. She uses various media and disciplines to create installations and objects that merge traditional and computational elements. She collaborates with neuroscience, stem cell research, mathematics, and cardiothoracic surgery experts to address current health and well-being challenges, most recently working with community partners and experts in public health and pain research. Her investigations of the socio-cultural and ecological forces that shape landscapes and plant life result in site-specific artworks that delve into history, economy, and community. Prophet’s artwork is globally exhibited and held in collections, including the Arts Council of England's National Collection. She is co-editor of Plants By Numbers: Art, Computation, and Queer Feminist Technoscience, a 2023 anthology exploring plant ecologies, art and design practices, and computation, where her chapter focuses on her plant-centred artworks and the concept of “phytographia” – coding with plants.
