Fiona Glen is a writer and artist interested in lifeforms and lifeworlds of all kinds, and kindness in relations between humans and other things. In October 2019, Glen was commissioned by the ICA In Production and BBC New Creatives to create an 18-minute audio work from the perspective of five objects scattered through the streets of London in the wake of environmental protests. In May 2019, Glen performed a 15-minute piece about desire in measurement at London’s Science Museum. She has recently written a performance text for artist duo Arvid&Marie that voices the creation myth of a geoengineering AI. Her writing has been published by Aesthetica, NOIT Journal, Art & the Public Sphere, and Harper Collins as part of Letters to the Earth. Glen is also a creative copywriter for a live experience agency. For her final MA Writing project at the Royal College of Art, she is working on a tentacular text that follows the octopus into far-flung corners of contemporary culture and thought.
