About Naomi

The launch of a new documentary "Ice Alice" about the microbial secrets of the cryosphere

My work looks at human interaction with the environment, especially issues around migration, elements, water and memory. My practice is multimedia and multidisciplinary, using drawing, paint, photography, sculpture, installation, walking, performance and sound to investigate the world.
