Stephen Bennett focuses on the relationships between art, science and policy.
"Recent political and societal events have persuaded me that it is important to see art, science and politics as interrelated. Ice caps are melting, species are being wiped out, societies are ageing and inequality is entrenched. There is abundant evidence and data on this yet political decisions are not always based on this. My work explores whether art can bridge the gap between science and public decision-making. Data is increasingly pervasive in our lives, yet is also increasingly alienating in its complexity and vastness."
