Angela Davies is an interdisciplinary artist working across the intersections of art, science, technology and nature to create sculpture, installation and performative works. Davies is driven by an inquiry into phenomena of the natural world and perceptual experiences of it. Her work engages with contemporary themes within the context of site, space and process and is often informed by scientific exchange and collaboration. The use of technologies within her artworks encourage poetic engagements between people and place. This interaction extends to new reflections upon the way the environment is experienced and imagined.

Her work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions such as S12 Galleri Bergen, Norway, V2 Lab for the Unstable Media, Netherlands, Pontio Arts & Innovation, Bangor and Meno Parkas Galerija, Kaunas, Lithuania.
