JUDITH ALDER

Bio: I'm a visual artist. I make my work using a range of media and processes and often show it as collections or installations of objects, images and drawings animated with sound, light and moving image. I'm interested in how things grow and change over time and how science, nature and technology collide in today's world. For 30/30 2021 I'm focusing on drawing, starting off with black ink on white paper and making small changes to my drawing techniques each day in order to watch the evolution of each drawing day by day. My theme for the month is the interconnectedness of all things and the links, chains, networks, meshes, structures and patterns which are formed as things connect.
