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 and a minimalist aesthetic. 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.
She has exhibited her work in major cities such as Lisbon, London, Amsterdam and in far flung remote locations such as; in the shadow of a volcano on the Azorean Island of Pico and in the wilderness of the Pyrenean mountain range. She was recently included as the featured artist in I.science magazine published by London Imperial college and is studying towards an MA in Art & Science at Central Saint Martins university. She has been invited as artist in residence at various studios and galleries across Europe, also facilitating creative workshops and creating site specific projects for arts festivals.
