Jasmine Pradissitto – Breathe: How Physics Met Art to Create an Accidental Activist
Jasmine Pradissitto is a British artist, academic, scientist, speaker and environmentalist who has a Ph.D. in physics from UCL and has studied art at Goldsmith’s and London Met. Her critical practice spans painting and sculpture and she is the only artist in the world licensed to use NOXTEKTM , a newly developed sustainable material that absorbs nitrogen dioxide (NOx) pollution from the air. Jasmine is represented by Gillian Jason Gallery in London, and has exhibited worldwide including most recently two public art projects for the Horniman Museum in London and the Camden People’s Theatre for Euston Town Green Bid, a Mayor of London environmental initiative.
Our discussion discusses how once Jasmine learned that she was “allowed” to use her physics background to make art, this unleashed a wave of creativity, particularly around her sculptures, which are designed not only to create awareness of space but also to inspire awareness of the air that we breathe and the blight of urban air pollution.
