Joanna Kidner is an Oxfordshire based artist who examines her relationship between the somatic/natural and physical world and how she interacts within it in conjunction with the increasingly captivating and encroaching digital world.
To execute this, she combines domestic by-products, acoustic, visual and bodily experiences she has in her rural and home environment with the digital in the pursuit of finding congruence between the physical and digital realms in multi-sensory installation artworks

Masters Major Project
Joanna gained a distinction for an MA in art and design education and her research during this time used the medium of film montage, through metaphor, composition sound and textual analysis, to explore how to better understand her position as a female artist educator. Her findings highlight and clarify how the proximity of historically embedded canons from the Enlightenment era are a corollary to those experienced in art education and the art institution today. She also considers the damaging implications of gendering art and design together with the importance for change within art education and the art establishment.
Materials: jam, frozen jelly, projection of boiling jam, muslin pods and aluminium bowls
