WINNER - EMERGING ARTIST AWARD 2018
An exhibition of artworks based on research undertaken by PHD students at The University of Bath.
'Sea Soup' was created in collaboration with PHD student Russell Arnott, depicting mesocosm facilities at Umeå Marine Science Centre and the community of phytonplankton species in the Gulf of Bothnia. The mesocosms simulate varying turbulence and temperature levels through convection currents, represented in the image by varying sizes of waves. Presented below in 4 separate sections as exhibited, representing the 4 mesocosm environments, and as a single full length image.
I was genuinely humbled to win the award for emerging artist, especially when judged alongside around 180 other entries! Thank you to everyone The Edge Arts Centre involved with the exhibition!

"Working alongside Scott is a great experience; I'm impressed at how quickly he can produce quality illustrations in his own unique style. Being that our projects were themed around the marine environment, Scott ensured he understood the scientific concepts involved and it was great to see how well he was able to represent them in his work!”
