Name: Iain Biggs

An independent artist, teacher and researcher interested in place seen through the lens of Felix Guattari’s ecosophy, working extensively on ‘deep mapping’, other projects and publications.


I work as an independent artist, teacher, and researcher with a particular interest in place seen through the lens of Felix Guattari’s ecosophy. I’m a Visiting Research Fellow at the Environmental Humanities Research Centre at Bath Spa University, and an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Dundee. I help coordinate three creative research networks and also supervise doctoral students in the UK and the Irish Republic.

I have worked extensively on ‘deep mapping’ projects, produced artist’s books, publish on a range of academic and non-academic topics, and write a regular blog. In 2014, I held a Moore Institute Visiting Fellowship at NUI, Galway, and have recently been working in Bristol on a major AHRC-funded project exploring notions of hydro-citizenship. I currently work collaboratively with artist/activists involved in a variety of socially and environmentally engaged practices.
