Event Details

Jennifer Turpin is a public artist with twenty years’ experience creating kinetic installations engaging water, wind, and light as a sculptural media. Her works are site-specific and at the interface of art, science, nature and the built environment. In 2016, as the recipient of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travelling Fellowship, Jennifer researched public art and architectural design in the contemporary and historic cultures of Japan, Denmark, Iceland and Italy.

In her lecture Jennifer will use videos and images to show the wondrous variety of Iceland’s water. She will explore the unique culture of water that has developed in this place of thermal springs and hot baths. She will examine the effect this has had on the population and how it has become part of the country’s happiness. We will also see some of Jennifer’s installations.
