Exhibition: Space & Satellites Artist Residency

Exhibition now live

In our first Artist in Residence programme for Inspace we invited a group of 5 multi-disciplinary artists to focus on the theme of Space and Satellites data. These residencies created a space for exploration and aimed to create genuine collaborations between science and creative practice.

The chosen artists represent a wide range of disciplines, from sound artists to weavers, illustrators to dancers and photographers. Each of their projects responds to how satellite datasets are helping to track the changes to life on earth, from the movement of Puffins to environmental changes through to the impact that the Coronavirus has had on our cities.
