SPACER is an interdisciplinary art studio. Interdisciplinarity is where people from different disciplines and walks of life collaborate and work towards a goal that unites them and in our case, that is making art. We define art as a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artefacts that express a conceptual idea and are intended to be appreciated for their emotional power. Drawing upon skills and expertise from across our diverse community, we create artworks as individual artists, as a collective and for other practitioners.
Our team explores the purpose and value of sustainable creative practice through researching, experimenting, making and learning. We believe that sustainability is essential as we face big social challenges. We believe that creativity is at the heart of risk-taking which can lead to innovation, which in turn leads to solutions.
The work we make exploits traditional and developing technologies, challenging art’s relationship with science, business, craft, education and research. We work for and with scientists, business, artists, craftsmen, educators, researchers and these have included fashion designers, architects, museums, universities, the film and tv industries, retail and beyond.
Our work supports the exchange of knowledge between artists and other communities to understand and value the diversity of our worlds.
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As we change our own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards us. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Adpated from Mahatma Gandhi
