"I'm delighted to be invited to participate in the TEDxAlbertopolis event. To be considered as a person who may contribute 'ideas worth spreading' is a great honour. My practice over the past 15 years has involved working with extraordinary artists to respond to and place their work alongside exhibitions exploring the most exciting ideas at the forefront of contemporary science. The opportunity to use this format to further explore connections between the arts and sciences as parallel and equal forms of cultural practice and research is one I'm looking forward to with great anticipation."
