Mo is a multi-disciplinary practitioner using social art to explore being human on a shared planet, broadening traditional Western science and knowledge-making systems to create ecological futures. Informed by a background in environmental biology, her practise foregrounds process. Mo uses open-source citizen science methodologies to research hyper-local ecologies with communities, observing the interconnected nature of the total environment and the multiplicity of source, including landscape, folklore, lived experience, sampling, written word, museology, music, sound. Mo’s artistic practise is rooted in behavioural research to maximise connection and campaign strategy to maximise impact.

Mo has won support from Akademie Schloss Solitude, Arts Council England, Climate Art, DEFRA, Makerversity, Near Now, University of Nottingham and The Institute for Art and Innovation. Past collaborations include Chaos Magic, Ignite Futures!, FOSAC [Festival of Science and Curiosity], NGFP [Nottingham Good Food Partnership], Public Lab for Open Technology and Science, Rye’s Own, Sussex Wildlife Trust and The Urban Room.

Mo is born and based in London, working internationally on a project basis.
