Abstract

Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir & Mark Wilson are a collaborative artistic team based out of England, Iceland, and Gothenburg, Sweden, who practice research-based, socially engaged art. Their work employs creativity, observation, and collaboration to examine and highlight the overlap between nature and culture, and human and non-human animals to the environment. Utilizing processes and procedures often associated with scientific disciplines, their projects culminate in installations and incorporate objects, texts, photography, video, and drawing. Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir (PhD) is currently visiting Professor at Malmö Art Academy, Lund University. She is also a guest teacher at the Icelandic Art Academy and University of Iceland. Mark Wilson (PhD) is currently Associate Professor in Fine Art at the University of Cumbria, UK. The artists are currently (2014/15) Research Fellows at the Centre for Art and Environment based at the Nevada Art Museum, Nevada, USA.
