Claire Anna Watson’s recent installations and video works explore ephemeral matter as a site of scientific manipulation and experimentation. She propels the everyday object into a state of dreamlike wonder. Her installations also reveal an abiding interest in spatial and socio – cultural analysis and a passion for the absurd. She has devised public art projects for the shores of the Black Sea in Turkey, a forest in Finland, the rural plains of Portugal and the snowfields of Australia. Claire is experienced as a curator, writer and arts administrator and is a Master of Fine Art Candidate at Monash University. She lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
