Neal White is Interdisciplinary Professor, and an artist and Co-director of CREAM. His research draws on the critical legacy of conceptual and critical art in society – a term that now addresses the non-human. His work focuses on interrogating the artistic representation of our post-natural and post-industrial environments through science, its landscape and laboratories, data and infrastructures, technologies and innovations aimed at observing, measuring and shaping knowledge and experience. Combining fieldwork, primary and experimental research methods, and by working in collaboration with researchers from other disciplines, his work traverses the complex and messy scalar narratives around subjects such as environment, ethics and innovation. In 2004, Neal founded Office of Experiments, an independent artist-led research organisation that supports critical forms of research practice. In 2019, he founded the Deep Field Project, based at The University of Westminster, which extends this collaborative work.

Art and Society
Explored through performance, installation, and ceramics, and between art and science, the diverse practices of CREAM researchers in this area are drawn together for their emphasis on critical and collective engagements with the question and role of art and society.
