Impermafrost (2017) Angela Davies

Impermafrost is a solo exhibition in succession of a residency programme the artist engaged in at S12 Galleri.

Impermafrost is an audiovisual installation that seeks to encourage reflection on environmental dialogues. The alchemy of glass through the transformative qualities of heat and light allow for connections alluding to ice forms and processes of climate change. The light installation is animated through responsive coding creating projections of the glass embodiments. The cyclical illumination of the works is informed by the shifting states of Arctic sea ice.

Angela Davies is an interdisciplinary artist based in Wales, working across the intersections of art, science, technology and nature. Her work engages with contemporary themes within the context of site, space and process. The works interaction allows for intimate experiences that encourage altered perceptions between inner and outer space. This extends to reflections upon the way the environment is experienced and imagined. Davies draws upon a hybrid of traditional disciplines alongside creative technologies to create interactive eco-light sculptures and installation.

Angela is the Co-Director of Studio MADE, a cross-disciplinary studio and gallery space in Denbigh and is a resident artist at Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol. She has exhibited on an international level and has work within public and private collections in the UK, Europe and the USA. She has been the recipient of several awards, most recently she was granted the Impact Acceleration Account Award from the Economic and Social Research Council. The award allows her  to work with a Scientist at Bangor University to develop research in relation to human induced climate change. Davies completed her MA with Distinction at Manchester School of Art in 2013.
