Meredith Brice Copland’s research project explores artistic responses to changes taking place in science and society due to the nanotech (technical) revolution. More specifically, she looks at these radical changes – artistically and philosophically – through the perspective of nanotech textiles.
Copland’s Master of Philosophy thesis and exhibition, (in)visible art: conspicuous making in an age of nano textiles, considers how artists navigate the nanoscale/science/technology space using speculative and material imaginations, and argues for the role of the artist as an agent of transformation and innovation where artifacts can narrate, mediate, critique and inform debate.
