    • Information Experience Design
  • Felicity Hammond is an artist and educator based in London. She is currently undertaking TECHNE-funded research in the Contemporary Art Research Centre at Kingston University on digital representations of the built environment and their relationship with site. She has worked with major institutions including Tate Modern, The Whitechapel Gallery, The Photographer's Gallery and The Saatchi Gallery, and her work is held in international collections.

  • Biography

  • Felicity Hammond received an MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art in 2014 and was subsequently awarded AHRC TECHNE funding to undertake her practice-based PhD at Kingston University. Through her research, she has developed an approach that both uses and critiques photography, fusing the photographic image with installation. 

  • Practice

  • In 2016 Felicity completed two commissioned works; a durational work at Tate Modern that imagined the new Tate building to be a future luxury development, and a site-specific work for the University of Brighton, commissioned by Photoworks. She has undertaken numerous residencies in order to develop her research into the changes in the urban fabric, including ‘Art Cities and Regeneration’ curated by Gas Works and Arts Hub Asia, (Italy, 2013) and a residency with Bow Arts. These research periods helped to frame her ideas around the impact of culture and the decline of industry on the city, whilst taking on new technologies in her practice.

  • Publications, exhibitions and other outcomes

  • In 2016 and 2019 Felicity received arts council funding for solo shows at Space In Between and Arebyte, London.
