My name is Iona Scott. For over 25 years, I have been working in the fields of science, technology, education and the arts, creating and exhibiting paintings, sculptures and animations in the UK, USA and the Netherlands.
My work raises awareness of the important role marine phytoplankton play in our survival. My immersive exhibits enable the viewer to enter the plankton realm and marvel at the beauty and complexity of the plants responsible for producing 50% of the oxygen in our atmosphere.
My work includes commissions for Kew Gardens, (which toured the UK), and 'Shrunk' a Virtual Reality interactive voyage into the microscopic dimension of planktonic life in the Sea. Winter 2019 sees my 3D printed plankton light sculptures on display at the world’s first Museum entirely devoted to the realm of the microscopic: Micropia, part of the Artis Amsterdam Royal Zoo for the Amsterdam Festival of Light.
I am very grateful to all my supporters which include my family, friends, commissioners and collaborators past and present without whom I would not be where I am today.
