Mike barrett United Kingdom
My practice sits at the intersection of science and philosophy, sometimes a considered enquiry, often due to my ASHD subject to disruptive but helpful interjections. I work in installation, digital imaging and video, with paper and packaging materials and often incorporating my lifelong fascination with code. I am strongly interested in collaboration, with other artists and with science teams
Over the course of my practice I have evolved from object making (mostly glass sculpture) to the narrative installation form.
My strongest passion is for the process phase between idea and installation set-up. That together with my passion for collaboration, has led me to current projects working with scientists and their teams to engage and fire up the combination of creative and science processes to break new thinking and concept grounds
