Diane Edwards confronts the interpolating realities of technological progress, societal change and ecological disaster. Utilising synthetic and organic media to create virtual worlds, moving-image, sculpture and installation - their research led practice conducts inquiries into digital, biological and earthly ecologies, drawing influence from Science Fact, Science Fiction, philosophical, technological and environmental concerns. Recent projects have investigated catastrophe and complex systems;  digital/organic ontologies; the alien nature of human cognition; 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.
