Sam Treadaway is a British artist whose multi-disciplinary practice includes: sculpture, book arts, scent installations and occasionally live events. In making use of existing frictions between aesthetic form and utilitarian function, he edits and re-aligns found objects, structures, and systems thus generating new outcomes. The interplay between the arts and other fields of knowledge, such as science and philosophy, often inform these processes. Together with Ricarda Vidal, Sam Treadaway curates and organises the collaborative and international project Revolve:R.
