Synthetic Ecology (SE) is an artist-run research project devoted to screening artists’ moving image and developing collaborative & experimental learning spaces. SE aims to engage emerging and established artists from different cultures and communities, connected by a sensitivity to bridging ecological thought and technological socio-political issues. SE is critical of ecological and environmental art being inaccessible and un-relatable to contemporary experimental artists’ practice, and therefore aims to form a critical and shifting platform for ecological research and artist’s moving image. Founded by artist Lou Lou Sainsbury.
