Charlotte is an artist who collaborates with scientists. She has put on solo shows  
and performances across Europe and the UK and has been Resident artist at a number 
of scientific institutions, including the European Bioinformatics Institute, The

(and failing to eat it).

==== Simon Katan ====
Simon Katan presents Conditional Love,  an interactive performance for laptop and all 
of your smart phones. This ongoing project, funded by the Austrian Science Board (?), 
is a personal reflection on narcissism and social media - more information here. Simon
is a digital artist and lecturer in Creative Computing at Goldsmiths.

==== Emilie Giles ====
www.emiliegiles.co.uk
Emilie will discuss her PhD work around working with blind and visually impaired 
people using e-textiles. She has been exploring how participants connect personal 
memories and associations to the specific textures of textiles and how this can be 
used to create a soft, interactive object.

==== Dani Clode ====

The Third Thumb Project is an exploration of prosthetics through human extension. It 
enables a better understanding of controlling and connecting prosthetic technology to
