Leah Lovett is an artist who works collaboratively to make performances, videos, drawings, writings and workshops that explore the socialising fictions played out between people in cities and across mediated space. Her work borrows from other disciplines and cultural forms including human geography, music and theatre. Leah is a founder member of art collective TRIPOD, and works as a freelance writer and an arts educator in gallery, higher education and school contexts.
Lizzy Jordan creates Minumental artwork that explores how humans perceive extremes of scale.
Minumental: working with small things to create something that is monumental in feeling or scale.
Her work takes the form of kinetic light projections that combine micro sculpture, macro photography, kinetic sculpture and projection. All works play with perception allowing viewers to imagine and create alternative readings of space.
The works are site specific and have existed in unusual architectural spaces; medieval vaults, an 18th century folly, mansions and a yurt.

With Studio Polpo Jon has undertaken a number of projects investigating shared living and alternative models for housing and helped to deliver commissions for The Tetley gallery and Bloc Projects which playfully explore the connections between art and architecture.
