Introductions, in the beginning
Jo Milne: I am an artist, lecture at an Art and Design School affiliated to the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona and at times supplement my income like Edith with translations.
My work explores the visualisation of the invisible, looking at the methods and methodologies artists and scientists have developed to make the invisible visible. The work ranges from painting, drawing and sculpture to analogue photography techniques and printmaking. I am particularly interested in exploring how these methods can be used to respond to ideas considered within the field of theoretical physics in particularly string theory and quantum loop gravity.
I am really excited by the possibility of this research group as although I have worked for many years as an artist and teaching art, I find the writing of research articles and project proposals and look forward to the discussions we might have in the hope of surmounting this stumbling block.

Anna Walker: So, briefly – through my work, I explore trauma, memory, identity and culture. www.anna-walker-research.com I am interested in A.R.E. as a resource, a dialogue/discussion, a safe online community to share ideas, research, work, and opportunities.
Belen Cerezo: I work with photography and moving-image, I explore their functioning and I’m interested in performance, immersion and embodiment. My last project was an immersive moving-image installation. I’d love to be able to able of continue with this line of enquiry!! https://belencerezo.com
I am based in Nottingham, and I am an associate lecturer in Photography at Nottingham Trent University. This is how I earn a living, but this is a precarious role. Also I have experienced it is really difficult to combine the teaching with developing my practice in a healthy and sustainable way.
At the moment I am reading “staying with the trouble” by Donna Haraway. Feminist and ecologist thinking are very touching and helpful for me at the moment.
On a more personal note, I enjoy food and sharing dinners with friends. And I am Spanish.
