Annie Carpenter

Annie Carpenter is interested in artistic and scientific labour, drawing on amateur science experiments, hobbyist engineering projects and futile human endeavour. The notion of the ‘demonstration’ is always present in her work, either through a subtle hint of demonstrative action using static sculpture or video, or more explicitly through performance and photography. In 2015 she embarked on an art and science expedition to Svalbard, through Arctic Circle, NY and has recently completed a BSc (Hons) Natural Sciences with the Open University, specialising in astronomy and planetary science.
