Joanna Wright was an artist in residence with Zero Carbon Britain during 2013.
This residency was part of a new strategic partnership between the Arts Council of Wales & the Centre for Alternative Technology CAT.
It invited applications from both UK and international artists working in film, photography or digital media, who wished to develop their practice through working at CAT for a period of twelve months by engaging with its research projects and its community of staff.
Hosted by CAT and funded by Arts Council of Wales, the residency offered the opportunity to access time and space away from their usual practice to work in the context of a cutting edge research project.
The residency provided time to absorb the cultural implications of CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain (ZCB) work, www.zerocarbonbritain.org, both through the findings of work to date and in joining the team of researchers during the current phase of their investigation.
It also provide an opportunity to meet new people, sourcing new material and experiencing life in a new location.
The residency allowed the artist(s) to interpret, explore and engage with the wider learning context offered through CAT’s ‘living laboratory’ of hands-on projects.
