Studio

Studio

Invisible Flock are artist led.

Through our studio we want to develop a growing sense of community, around work and methods, sharing knowledge and resources. A space where something is always being made, explored, reshaped; an evolving laboratory that extends out to support and facilitate others in our sector and beyond. A space that is inclusive and practices openness and making as a mindful process.

Our studio is a space to prototype and iterate at scale, where we will host an increased residency program and build on our sustainability actions and agenda.

Directly below you can read up on how we are developing a sustainable studio. Further down there is information and links to our residencies and development work.

Sustainable Studio

Our studio is now based at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

This move marks a turning point in our ambitions to build a more sustainable workbase.

We are in a constant process of learning and developing ways we can be more sustainable, working with our peers and multi sector collaborators to gather knowledge and design approaches together. 

Invisible flock is part of GALA (Green Art Lab Alliance) a network of 42 international organisations committed to what environmental sustainability means for the visual arts and design sector.

Energy

Our studio is powered by 100% renewable energy. 

 

Materials

Materials come from accredited sustainable sources and we are developing sustainable procurement guidelines.

Materials are re-purposed and recycled wherever possible to eliminate waste.

Electronic components are stripped down and made reusable after each project has ended.

We are exploring alternative recyclable/biodegradable materials in our workshop.

 

 

Food

We serve vegetarian food at our events and workshops.

We have communal lunches in the studio whenever possible to reduce food waste.

Our small garden allows us to grow food and compost food waste from the kitchen.

 

Transport

We are installing electric car charging points at our studio for the use of our team and guests.

 

Technology

We are undertaking a 3 year project called the cost of innovation.

Researching the hidden costs of digital tools to the environment.

How as a sector we can better share digital resources. 

 

Limiting how much tech we buy and waste and investing in equipment from ethical supply chains. 

Making it accessible to other artists through our studio. 

 

Recycling

We have switched our waste management company to allow us to recycle plastic, paper and aluminium. 

 We rely on recycling only when there is no re-use option.

 

Residencies

Residencies are an important element to our studio practice. Under our 3 year project, The Cost of Innovation, we are able to offer the opportunity to invite artists to join us in investigating models and tools for innovation in our sector. This is a rolling programme, while we seek further international and national opportunities alongside this. Full details on our past, current and future residencies can be found on the links below.

Development

Our development work is constantly evolving through the innovative and reactive nature of our practice. Each project, collaboration, concept and installation require us to create, disrupt and invent. Our development section showcases a snapshot of some of the technology and prototypes that we have created.

Journal

Our journal brings insight to the inner workings, thoughts, processes and creative practice of the Invisible Flock team. From the code heavy to inner monologues on both research and artistic expression.

The Cost of Innovation

The Cost of Innovation is a three year project that investigates models and tools for innovation in the creative sector, exploring how true technical innovation can be supported while focussing on access and ecological action.
