Getting There

04/25/2019

The deadline for @creativereactionsbristol was yesterday!!! My work explores the research of geneticist, Charlie Hatcher. She is interested in how environmental factors impact upon DNA methylation.


This concept blew my tiny mind!!! I struggled to find a visual hook to make this abstract concept more understandable to me.
The data Charlie utilises is from the @children_of_the_90s project. This in itself I was unfamiliar with, so I sought out some of those individuals involved in ALSPAC.
My conversations with Jean Golding (who started ALSPAC) and a few of the 14000 initial participants have enabled me to humanise the epigenetic research.
I have learnt a lot via this collaboration and it has made me conduct research in very different ways to my usual approach! I am super happy with the resulting artwork - each piece is unique and all will be on sale during the exhibition at North Street gallery and at the Island.
