Callum Caplan is a recent Fine Art graduate from Newcastle University (2017).

I am a sculptural installation artist, interested in sustainability and its involvement within architecture and design. Many of my sculptures are created from natural and living materials, meaning the element of ‘time’ is of significance.

I am a finalist for the Gillian Dickson North East Sculptor of the Year Award 2017 and have recently shown work at Ars Electronica in Linz. This project is unique in allowing art and science to cross over, sharing resources and information to help one another.

Sometimes science can be hard to digest or fully comprehend. In this collaboration, art is used as a middle-man, translating complex information into something more accessible to the general public.
