Jane Scobie 

A multi-disciplinary installation artist whose work explores the fluid boundaries between the organic and inorganic, the human and the nonhuman.  Research areas include biodiversity, extraction and ocean literacy. Her MA work explores the Strandline, a ‘living system’ as material, model and metaphor to understand our relationship with the ocean in the context of climate breakdown. Jane uses materials and processes with a low environmental impact and has a circular creative approach to design.
