Diane Edwards navigates the parallel yet entangled worlds of climatic mutation and digital optimization. Using synthetic and organic media to create sculpture, moving-image and installation - their research led practice conducts inquiries into digital, biological and earthly spaces, and ecologies. Recent projects have investigated digital/organic ontologies; rare earths; the human microbiome and more-than-human life; speculative notions of life after ‘mass extinction’; the socio-technological issues of AI, technology dependence and labour.
