Millicent Hawk is an interdisciplinary conceptual artist interested in whole systems design, deep ecology and economic reform. Her work looks to ways that cultural structures and labour can form regenerative ecologies. Hawk frequently curates group exhibitions with international artists as well as organising and collaborating in other socially driven projects and initiatives.
Currently in residency at SPACE to research and develop -PLANES- an AI and digital ecology. -PLANES- develops both autonomously and through experiences of forms of touch. On an infinite plane, it mimics aquatic life and organisms such as transgender algae and the immortal jellyfish through mathematical abstractions.
In 2015, following an MA in Fine Art in London, Hawk founded Avalanche, an artist-run lounge in Peckham - the programme of which relates to her work and research. She was on the Executive Committee for Artists' Union England and in 2016 formed an interdisciplinary collaborative-based artwork called SUPERCELL. SUPERCELL is a fluid and amorphous experimental art and technology collective forming decentralised social networks with mutual interests as the basis of function. SUPERCELL's Prototype is a digital network for up to ten users.
