Handweaver and scientist…

… exploring scientific concepts through data physicalisation and material exploration.

… developing handwoven textile objects that promote conversations about heritage, connection to place, and identity.

… combining ancestry research, genetic data and explorations of materiality to consider what it means to “be Scottish” (by birth and/or by choice) in the 21st century.
