Katy Connor engaged with scientific processes of Atomic Force Microscopy and data visualisation whilst associate artist at i-DAT. Her new work reflects on these technologies and how they frame perception. PUREFLOW [mobile edition] is a miniature, hand held iPhone app for a mobile and global audience. It reveals the noise generated between GPS data systems and multiple satellites, 3G networks and Wifi hotspots as a tangible presence in the environment. Untitled_Force is a sculptural piece that translates a digital micrograph of the artist’s blood into architectural porcelain, using industrial processes. Katy Connor is a Plymouth Visual Arts Consortium artist hosted by i-DAT. For more information visit www.katyconnor.com

Artist Katy Connor is featured on BBC Click talking about her latest work PURE FLOW [mobile edition]. BBC Click is broadcast on BBC World Service and available to listen to on iPlayer.
