Claire Burnett
Art, Space and Nature – MA // Edinburgh College of Art

Claire Burnett is a Scottish artist with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Art Practice and an MA in Art, Space and Nature. Working largely with photography and installation, her work stems from an interest in humanity’s relationship with the environment, believing that art can be a strong tool for communication, bridging the gap between research and the wider audience. She has exhibited her personal practice all over the UK, as well as internationally, including in Finland, the US, Denmark, and Mexico. Also having a background in public and interactive art, she has fulfilled commissions for festivals such as SPECTRA Festival of Light and Look Again Festival.
