Susan Collins (1964) works in response to specific sites and situations, often employing transmission, networking, and time as primary materials. Her key works include the BAFTA nominated Tate in Space, commissioned for TATE Online (2002); Underglow (2005-2006), a network of illuminated drains for the Corporation of London and Brighter Later (2013), a light installation for the Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford driven by live weather data. She has produced a series of year-long pixel by pixel internet transmissions from remote locations, including Seascape (2009), a solo show for the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea; LAND (2017), a live transmission from Jerusalem looking across the West Bank towards the Jordanian mountains, and Five Hours Later (2019-2020), an exchange between Sheffield, UK and Boston USA. Collins is Professor of Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London.
