Fiona Glen is a Scottish writer and artist currently living in London. Her work is concerned with ecologies, creatures, and compassion. She is particularly curious about what happens when writing gives voice to unexpected entities – what could a stick of chalk tell us about deep time? How would a series of corporate octopus logos interpret their purpose? These are the questions Glen’s work asks – although often they are too unruly to answer.
Fiona Glen is a Scottish writer and artist interested in the complex relationships between humans and our fellow animals, and in the lives of objects and materials. For her final MA Writing project at the Royal College of Art, she wrote Cephalopodomania – the manuscript for a short book that follows the slippery figure of the octopus through contemporary culture. Glen’s writing has been published in periodicals including Aesthetica, NOIT Journal, 3:AM Magazine, and Art & the Public Sphere, as well as in compilations including Le Grand K and Letters to the Earth from HarperCollins. She has previously been commissioned to create audio and multimedia projects by BBC x ICA New Creatives and Robert Young Antiques. Glen works as a Content Producer at Serpentine Galleries, and is continuing to develop Cephalopodomania alongside projects about plastics, crashed aircraft, and leaf sheep.
