Biography —
  1. Dr. Jennifer Crouch is an art-science practitioner working in sculpture, textiles, drawing, installation and painting. They have a background in physics and medical illustration and experience working as an artist in scientific laboratories, on expeditions in the Arctic Circle, with communities, and as part of local and international art projects. 
  2. Jennifer has guest lectured at universities across the UK and Europe, teaches textile arts at Morley College London, is fashion lead at NewVic FE College, and is an associate lecturer on the MA in Art and Science at Central Saint Martins, London.

  4. Jennifer is a queer slug and keen gardener interested in liminality, composting, LBGTQ culture & experiences, textiles, kink, magic and the absurdity of the cosmos.

Part of my creative practice is to design and run projects, events, participatory installations and immersive experiences that make scientific ideas and principles accessible. The workshops encourage creative thought and practice and emphasise the how maths, science, art, design and music relate to one another and every day life.

I am available to lead workshops, chair debates and talks on the subjects of:

- physical processes as works of art
- graphic narrative and science communication
- science fiction and representations of the future
- art, science and biomedical illustration
- medical illustration, anatomical art and working with scientists
- modes or representation and depictions of reality
- craft practices their role in the history of measurment
- statistics and craft
- visual art and representations of the un-visible
- DIY science experiments
- Art and Science throughout history
- observation and abstraction in art and science
