Bethan Hughes is an artist and researcher. She is currently based between Berlin and Braunschweig (DE), where she is taking part in the BS Projects Fellowship programme.
In her work she translates digital animations into tangible, physical artefacts and spatial installations. She is particularly interested in how the biological and bodily–that which is sensual, unruly and decaying–is transformed through modes of digital and industrial processing.
She is currently developing a new artistic research project; entitled Devil’s Milk, it explores the materiality of latex rubber, it’s natural origins, it’s relationship to the human body and the ways in which it connects vast and violent histories of extractivism and exploitation with the development of global trade, remote communications, fashion and fetish.
