Molly Macleod is a multidisciplinary artist exploring scientific concepts through collaborative projects with researchers and scientists. Through poetic interpretation and distilling meaning via her use of unconventional, signifying materials, her artwork invites intimate and philosophical engagement combined with accessible simplicity. Locating her practice within the liminal space between art and science she employs the scientific method to examine and question cultural phenomena.
Molly has grown crystals that hear sounds, cultured the microbial imprint of TATE Modern visitors, formed pigment from her own skin, created a microphone out of carbon from her own body, revealed the sonic world from within trees and walked new paths formed by the patterns of her own veins.
Molly is a graduate from MA Art & Science at Central Saint Martins and has exhibited her work in major galleries such as TATE Modern, Maverick Projects, Apiary Studios & Fabrica Gallery and in far flung remote locations such as; in the shadow of a volcano on the Azorean Island of Pico for Montanha Festival and in the wilderness of the Pyrenean mountain range for CAMP France. She was recently shortlisted for the MullenLowe NOVA Award and was named the winner of the Digital Arts category of the Global Design Graduate Showcase 2021 from Artsthread & Gucci.
