Nicole is an interdisciplinary artist with a Masters with distinction in Interdisciplinary Arts and Social Sculpture. Researching performance, sculpture and participation as connective aesthetics within campaign direction she highlights pressing social and environmental issues. Integrating invisible materials such as collective imagination and autonomous agency, her questions explore the relevance of the expression of a quality of a material in visual interpretation. She understands these qualities as tools for visually drawing attention to and connecting ethics to aesthetics. Nicole has a strong track record in exhibiting internationally and aiding organisations and collaborations that supports progress in social, political and carbon neural economies.
Her practice explores questions surrounding the interplay between connective aesthetics, socially engaged practice, science/environment and how the role of imagination, play and beauty can be the founding arena for transformation and development. Key factors are based on the philosophies of Schiller, Kant, Goethe and Heidegger.
Nicole is extending methodologies in visual impact initiatives that look at non-conformist and indeterminate ideas around working groups as sculpture. Her current research questions the relevance of autonomous agency and communal imagination in reaching across borders to ignite new practices in narrative activism, facilitation and creative collaboration, where material and mind-processes are ultimately non-distinguishable.
She currently teaches in the Netherlands and offers talks, workshops and consultation for NGO’s and ethical organisations.
