Hannah Scott

Hannah Scott is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores ways of visualising and communicating environmental change. Hannah creates art that endeavours to raise awareness of ecological issues, through actions that challenge her own values and abilities, rather than simply delivering a moral message. Journeys are integral to her practice as a source of inspiration as well as being performative works in their own right. She references science and nature, as well as cultural and political topics related to identity, lifestyle, and loss.

Hannah Scott (b.1976) is a British artist based in London, UK. She is a member of the Wilderness Art Collective. Some of the places she has shown work include: the Royal Geographic Society, V&A Dundee, York Art Gallery, Earth Sanctuary Australia, and CERN Switzerland. She also has work held in private collections. Hannah has participated in The Arctic Circle and Joya Arte y Ecologia artist residencies. She has worked with scientists from the Government Office for Science, Kings College London, CERN, and the Met Office, on projects about the impact of climate change and plastic pollution on planetary and human health. She has contributed to publications including: The Dark Mountain Project; given lectures and interviews about her work for University of the Arts London, The Royal Society, BBC Radio 4, and various podcasts. She is a graduate of Central Saint Martins MA Art and Science 2017 and BA Arts and Design 2000, and Middlesex University MSc Multimedia Application Design 2003. She is a MullenLowe NOVA award winner.
