Sam Haynes

Artist, Project manager

I create single and multi panel artworks for public and private spaces, exploring the themes of energy and interaction. Repeated, often interactive features introduce an element of surprise and sense of play. My work seeks to build a greater awareness of the world around us, both through meaningful engagement and an innovative approach to design. Previous commissions include site-specific temporary installations, permanent public artworks and outdoor sculptures. 

My creative process has developed through a very community focused practice in which I increasing initiate projects, acting as lead artist, working alongside a range of partners. Collaboration remains an important aspect of my work, challenging preconceptions through interdisciplinary artwork and events.
