Books and short films: There is a joy in thinking about things, uncovering new information, gaining insights, solving problems, drawing attention to points of interest, making things happen, and marking out instances in time and space so others will note and remember them. Being an artist is like wearing the cloak of the chameleon: you can travel widely and blend into other worlds, taking on different roles, observing, taking mental photographs for later processing.

Thought Capture  by Ingrid Jensen

Ingrid Jensen - Thought Capture

Making books and short films are two of many ways to express ideas, and the idea almost always comes before the choice of medium. Once the medium is chosen, practicalities become integral to the original thought process ... competence, visual qualities, technicalities, light, colours, shapes, contrasts, papers, sounds, engagement, and so on ... all help carry the idea into the public domain.

Ingrid Jensen is variously an artist, biologist, teacher, curator and arts administrator, and all of these strands become incorporated into her art practice. She is currently chair of OpenHand OpenSpace studios, and contemporary art group arjeea21. She has studied and worked in Canada, the US and the UK, has an MSc from York University in Toronto, a DPhil in ecology from Linacre College Oxford, and an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins.
