Jo Hodges [www.johodges.co.uk] has a background in Human Ecology, community development and social justice.
Jointly their work investigates ecological and socio-cultural systems, processes and relationships, and explores new strategies for working in the public space. Their practice takes many forms and has included temporary and permanent works, site specific installations and socially engaged projects and processes. Their work is often led by context, where the outcome is determined as a result of process.
They are interested in research, experimentation and collaboration at the intersection of environment, culture, science and technology and exploring the role of art in social change. They are Director-Curators of Sanctuary Lab, a public art laboratory in the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park.
