  • Practice

  • Graham Hudson's artwork relates to the field of psychology and the philosophical and scientific questions of mind and body. How is behaviour constructed around the making and viewing of art? His work includes installations, objects, audio-visual works and social/performance projects. 

    Recent work has explored ideas around physical culture, relating to bio-tech and automation with its relation to ideas of consciousness and the body-object image. This is manifested through materials that play on temporality utilising traditional and digital methods of making, included ideas on acting, portraiture, toys and aerobics.
