Juile Light

I am an artist working on themes of health and disease and visualising illness and the body. I am fascinated by the implications of medical imaging and what it means to recognise your body from the inside out, leading me to explore how people imagine their bodies internally, sometimes at the microscopic level, and how that influences a sense of embodiment and identity. Visibility, invisibility, tactility and texture are central to my work and glass is a perfect material to express those ideas. I work principally in three dimensions as I believe that engaging with physical objects facilitates radically different ideas and conversations to viewing images, whether analogue or digital.

I recently completed an MA in Art & Science at Central St Martin’s and working on a range of projects that explore my interests in cell biology, medical imaging and the culture of science.
