A solo exhibition of inter-related artworks by Karen Ingham that focus on how detrimental human activities are critically endangering many of our most important eco-systems. Through film, digital textiles and hybrid craft, Deluge encourages the audience to see and become aware of the incredible miscroscopic imagery and structures of plankton, the behaviour of pollinating insects and the movement of the oceans; highlighting the interconnections of our local and global environment.
Prof. Karen Ingham is an internationally exhibited and published interdisciplinary artist. She is an Honorary Fellow of Swansea University Medical School and Honorary Research Fellow with Swansea College of Art UWTSD. Karen is an experienced collaborator who understands the process of creative exchange and much of her practice is socially engaged and involves public engagement. Her practice-led research is world leading in her field.
