If you relax and try to imagine every facet at once, you’ll see that we’re a kind of Venn diagram come to life.” Derek J. Skillings For the fourth session of Elastic Nature, we will be discussing a prevalent topic - the interconnectedness of matter. You only have to look to the recent

    I am an artist and researcher exploring nature futures. I uses participatory research, fiction, materials experimentation and thinking-through-making as methods to encourage new dialogues around our relationship with more-than-human nature; to imagine ecologies (with or without humans) and to future gaze on the planetary now. I run ELASTIC NATURE an open, interdisciplinary art research club. Recently I have: explored art x climate change on residency in Goa; was awarded the TENSION Gallery prize and exhibited 'Life.Formed' in London; contemplated the synergies between microbial life and our cosmic origins and been featured as one of 25 thinkers in WIRED co-founder Jane Metcalfe's book NEO.LIFE.
