Holly Birtles 
Holly investigates the relationship between human expression, performance, tactility and the flat photographic document. The process obscures the surface of photographs, introducing a suggestion of three dimension, layering and physicality. The act of re-photographing (flattening) is used as an antagonistic tool, eradicating vital sensory perceptions posed by the tangible and lumpy objects. Holly completed her MFA at The Slade School of Art and BA Photographic Arts at The University of Westminster. Some recent exhibits include: The Valetta Film Festival, Baltic Book Arts, Bergen Book Art Fair, Doomed Gallery and Cultural Centre Belgrade.

Beyond Tics & Beyond Seizures

Alexander Hirst

My core artistic practice has always been stimulated by new technology and investigating scientific advancements. Originally a painter my practice has organically become increasingly multi-disciplinary, through these additional interests, from exhibiting kinetic sculptures while studying a BA degree in Fine Art & Art History at Lancaster University to devising technology driven installations and developing bespoke printing techniques with the London Brain Project.

Angela Farragher

I graduated from AIT in 2012 with a BA in Design Communications which involved various forms of print, design, bookmaking and photography. In 2013 I received an Honours Degree in Digital Media which covered animation and motion graphics. It is these four years that I got to explore my passion for using mixed mediums and also discovered my desire for artistic photography. I would describe myself as a mixed media artist and photographer. My work and projects would mostly be escaping reality almost fantasy-like.

Julia Vogl

Holding American and British passports I startle the atlantic pursuing major public art commissions and engaging with various communities. I graduated from the Slade School of Art in 2011, and have become a professional social sculptor exploring in my work social, political, economic, medical and other Life style issues. Public commissions include work in a NYC park, a London supermarket, Berlin former women’s prison, a riad in Fez Morocco, Silver Spring Maryland shopping mall, Newcastle Museum & Krakow arts festival. Most recently I installed work at Arnos Vale Cemetery in Bristol and decked out a Vauxhall car with 200 hundred people in a Folkestone parking lot. In 2012  I won the Aesthetica Art Prize, Catlin Art Prize, and was recognized by American for the Arts Public Art in Review. When not making engaging art you can find me writing postcards, baking or directing art workshops for the London Brain Project.

Alexandre Moreau

I am a neuroscientist and freelance photographer passionate about science outreach and public engagement. I obtained my MSc and PhD in Neuroscience from University Paris Sud and joined University College as a postdoctoral fellow in 2010. My research focuses on the plasticity of neuronal circuits in the healthy and diseased neocortex. Outside the lab, I share my passion for the brain through school outreach, public engagement conferences and the organisation of science fair workshops. Since arriving in London I have explored further my interest for photography by covering public events and live performances but also by producing abstract and travel stock photographs for Getty Images. I am very exciting to be part of the London Brain Project because it brings together what I mostly love to do: sharing science and art with people who matter.
