Vicky believes in merging the boundaries between art and science to form the sub-heading "Biocraft." Biocraft is combining the vast amounts of data and research learned through biosciences and interpreting them into a more accessible artistic platform. Ceramics itself involves many scientific processes; from kiln firing to glaze materials, and it’s adaptability ensures it is the perfect medium to express this collaboration of knowledge.
Vicky has a keen interest in nature and microbiology and this translates into her exploration of bacteria, viruses and medicine. Microbiology thus far, is a relatively unexplored topic within art movements, yet there are constantly evolving resources, through new technology development. Not only can Biocraft educate people about microscopic life, but it will also challenge viewers to redefine their perception of beauty; even the most dangerous and lethal diseases can be beautiful.
