Jane Pepper (Socket)
My background is in the sciences, and I am interested natural history, and its associated conventions of presentation. The main focus of my practice is digital collage and assemblage, and I use grouping, sequencing, labelling, cross-referencing, and archiving activities in making work.
Referencing themes in nature such as repetition, 'no two the same', and the principles of 'growth and form', I have applied digital cloning techniques to test the effects of repetition and scale on a collection of natural forms.
Outcomes of this work to date include a series of field guides and 'natural history' wallpapers.
