Diane Edwards (b. 1987, Dunedin, New Zealand) is a Scottish interdisciplinary artist and researcher. Her work takes the form of an enquiry into digital technologies, technoscience, bioscience and new materialism. Most recently she has focused on the human microbiome, digital/organic ontologies and questions of more-than-human life.
Through a research-based practice Diane engages with current scientific and technological developments and effects, her main points of interest being the material practices within technoculture and contemporary computational methods involved in deciphering living matter.
Diane gained a Bachelors of Fine Art(Painting) at Edinburgh College Art in 2009, and has exhibited in various shows throughout the UK. This year she graduated with a MFA Arts at Goldsmiths University of London. In addition to her art practice she has worked as a freelance live video artist performing alongside record producers and DJs including Jeff Mills, Nathan Fake, Blawan and Optimo.
Diane’s research feeds into her curatorial practice, having produced a number of exhibitions in Glasgow and London. She is also a key member of Gossamer Fog Gallery, London, which focuses on the intersection between art and technology.

Vibrant and visceral, curious and re-imagined, this large-scale exhibition is composed with materials collected from previous constructs from the city of Glasgow.
The artists have created a programme of workshops, live digital drawing, talks and discussion for all ages to get involved with. Their aim is to work individually and as a unit, utilising each other’s skillsets to create an energetic place for the public to engage with over the course of the festival.
The project has been made possible, and is supported by Glasgow the Caring City and Clockwise.
