Cambridge, UK based artist and lecturer Tiina Burton delves into unknowns. For the past 7 years she has worked with scientists at Cambridge University and Imperial College London to create artistic responses to their cutting-edge research, investigating and interrogating topics as diverse as artificial consciousness, neural networks, robotic hands and high energy particle physics. Tiina inhabits systems and uses sensory experiences to help her investigate and question the fundamental nature of reality. Her processes move between analogue and digital recording, making, gathering and curating with a DIY, collaborative and inclusive ethos.

Her current personal artistic focus is an exploration of attention over time, space and matter through walking. The repetitive labour of step after step, one foot after the other has left traces throughout her work in numerous ways; from the stippling of ink on bromoil prints, the casts of erosion caused by repeated human traffic, to repetitive landscape forms in a multitude of materials and rhythmic waves of sound.

She brings this enthusiasm for investigation and experimentation into her teaching practice, with over a decade of experience. After graduating with a first class BA (Hons) Fashion Studies degree at London College of Fashion in 2007, Tiina began working as a technical lecturer at CSVPA. Now in a senior lecturer role, Tiina teaches a wide range of research, concept development, portfolio building, digital and technical skills within the School of Fashion at CSVPA including Clo3D pattern cutting and AI creativity. She has also worked as a visiting lecturer on MA Fine Art at the Open College of the Arts helping students curate and realise their final digital exhibition.

Tiina’s work has been collected and exhibited internationally. She has published two books of fine art photography, set up her own independent press, and has a third book of experimental AI poetry and image in the making. In 2020 she completed an MA in Fine Art with distinction from the Open College of the Arts.
