Becky Lyon creates assemblages of objects, speculative artefacts, mixed-matter visuals and sensory transmissions creating thought-tickling fictions around a post-natural future and explore spaces between the ‘organic’ and ‘artificial’. .
She considers herself a techno-optimist and is motivated by the resilience, creativity and innovation inherent in Nature 'OS'.
Taking cues from evolutionary processes, artificial life and the materiality of life her work pivots around explorations of ambiguous entities and environments where biology-geology-technology blur.
Recently, she has exhibited at The Science Gallery Dublin Life At The Edges, Athens Digital Art Festival 2018 The Singularity, TEDx Royal Society and TATE Modern Studio Reflex. She is artists in residence at THECUBE and is Co-Programme Lead for London LASER and the V&A Futures Series. She leads art research club, ELASTIC NATURE exploring the changing shape of nature and is a trustee of artist-run project space TURF in Croydon.
She is studying MA Art and Science at Central Saint Martins, London.
