Jo Berry specialises in digital art, applying digital technology to traditional drawing techniques. Her stunning series of colourful light boxes explores the connection between art and science and celebrates the human body and the use of new technology. Jo spent six months working with scientists at the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham, studying how a ‘hunger’ hormone stimulates the bodes cells, potentially paving the way for new drug treatments for obesity and diabetes by ‘turning hunger on and off’. She has turned her research into multi-coloured sculptural light boxes, digital drawings, vinyl artwork, animation and a ‘part documentary /part art’ film.
