UK-based artist Pete Quinn Davis has developed an expanded practice that forms hybrid connections to design, art, science and architecture. These focused interests include, notions of place, in terms of transformation, identity and memory, technology, ecology and particularly the understanding of materialising data in the context of the 21st century. His core interest has always focused on ideas of personal identity/how this contributes to place-making, artifact manufacture and the understanding of heritage. He is currently exploring digital processes through 3Dscanning and how this data can be transformed into new and exciting areas of practice.
Peter is currently Associate Head of School at the University of Plymouth in the School of Art, Design and Architecture and is Programme Leader for MA Design. He is widely published in areas stemming from PHD study including, place making, technology and materiality, sustainability, and creativity. He was trained at the Royal College of Art, firstly, in the experimental area of Environmental Media and then the School of Communication.
