About

Elaine Ford

I love exploring the interplay between science, technological innovation, biodiversity conservation and adventure. I’ve created multidisciplinary artwork using glass sculpture, installation, and painting.  I studied BSc in Biology with Ecology (integrating MSc Tropical Biodiversity), and a BA in Fine Art with Digital Crafting in Glass from Edinburgh College of Art. My recent work focuses on the creation of immersive experiences that transport the viewer to remote locations, to engage with wild landscapes, diverse cultures and rare species. In collaboration with Wild Immersion, I’ve exhibited immersive content in Paris, Los Angeles, at Burning Man and at home in Edinburgh.  These film and photographic techniques are developing my practice in time-based art.

I’m currently developing a long-term project exploring the application of 360 film-making techniques in the Okavango Delta, to help diverse communities around the world experience wildlife up-close and engage with the latest conservation issues.

I founded Planet ReWild to tell inspiring positive environmental stories about our planet.
