Learning for the Future: What can art do?
Developing an interdisciplinary learning framework between the arts and sciences
Heidi Morstang is an artist who works with contemporary photography and experimental documentary films. Her practice-based research explores the significance of landscape; she is interested in the social, cultural, environmental and archaeological histories embedded in landscapes. The majority of her work is created in the Nordic Arctic region, often in collaboration with scientists and various academic disciplines such as political and cultural history, forensic archaeology, biology, geo-sciences and pure mathematics. She uses images to explore and offer insight into complex and the subtle tensions and conflicts that characterize places, however beautiful our environment might appear. Her films have been screened at several international film festivals and her photographic works have been exhibited widely since 1995, and is represented in several private and public collections. She lectures in photography at Plymouth University, UK, and convenes the Land/Water and the Visual Arts Research Group.
