Opening our JOY season, is Jasmine Pradissitto an artist and physicist.
Her path to art was through science. Whilst completing a PhD from UCL on the Quantum behaviour of silicon in 1996 she was also attending Goldsmiths College in the evenings studying fine art. Art has always been her passion.
Her ‘Flower Girl’ sculpture currently displayed in the Horniman Museum garden uses pioneering pollution absorbing materials to clean the air around it.
We talk to Jasmine about:
What joy means to her
How she curates joy in her own life
How a tutor at art college gave her the freedom to merge science with art
Climate change and living sustainably
