Bio: Artist, Movician, and researcher, Di Mainstone creates body-centric sculptures, designed to encourage movement and inspire curiosity. Many of these wearable artifacts are embedded with technology. Some of them release sound when handled. Often can be modified to create new silhouettes, environments and functionalities. All of them tell a story. Di is best known for her project the Human Harp which involves transforming bridges and other architectural structures into giant musical instruments.
