  • Fankle 01

    Fankle is a newly formed multidisciplinary art collective, made up of emerging artists from across the UK, who work independently and come together to exhibit. A complex web of ideas and a shared love of creating unites their varied practices. As they weave stories from memory, experience and mythology, tangling and untangling, we’re reminded of the idea that a world of life is woven from knots. The name ‘Fankle’ is Scottish in origin and means entanglement, like threads where the beginnings and ends are uncertain.

My initial curiosity in how artists can work with scientists was piqued in 1998 when I became aware of the SciArt scheme. The ethos of the SciArt scheme encouraged me, as an artist, to seek out Life Scientists to collaborate with because the methods we employ to create images are connected. We both use laser technology (I make laser-cut lightboxes), which requires knowledge of light, optics, and computer visualisation methods and I am fascinated by how I can use scientific image data innovatively. As a result, since 2010, a central part of my practice has involved contributing to scientific research projects as one of the research team.”
