Gabrielle Hoad

Artist, Writer, Editor

I work across drawing, sculpture and digital media to test the limits of 'objective' observation and description. Recent collaborations with scientists and programmers have opened up new investigations into scientific process and the accumulation of data. Current work focuses on the ideal of exactitude in the mapping of reality - and phenomena that elude it.

I have a long-standing interest in the transcription of flight paths as a way of investigating perception, and an emerging interest in the interrelationship between horticulture and human culture.
