Approved: 19.04.2010

Susan Eyre is interested in unseen forces and activity of matter in the universe including intangible phenomena which cannot be explained in terms of materiality, such as the aura of place and the dream of paradise. She explores similarities in our search to understand the origin of our universe and human consciousness through physics, religious belief and mythology. Projects include lead artist for “Laboratory of Dark Matters”, a research, residency and events programme inspired by a visit to the dark matter research facility at Boulby Underground Laboratory; a Studio4 Chisenhale Residency in London where she built a human scale interactive ‘cloud chamber’ experience and working with Imperial College Space Society to launch a cloud chamber in the payload of a high altitude balloon as part of her residency at Allenheads Contemporary Arts where artists have access to the North Pennines Observatory.
