ABOUT

Nicole Manley is a mixed media artist and soil hydrologist. She creates works that seek to develop different ways of thinking towards how we live and relate to environment. She uses a combination of remotely sensed imagery, alternative photographic process, clay sculpture, embroidery, film and audio techniques to generate connections between people and environment, in ways that are intuitive, phenomenological and experiential. In particular she brings together different media together to add meaning to inter-relationships and processes that exist in the environment, which are often hidden and/or taken for granted. She is currently undertaking a practice based PhD in Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, UK to research the influence of environmental art and to question water management policy.
