John Blines

 

My practice is entrenched in medical and behavioural science. I am interested in how the (my) body both functions and fails to function. The systematic mapping of bodily function (malfunction) forms the foundation of my drawing practice and research methodology.

I have been Artist in Residence at Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer (FCIC) since 2015. My focus is the development of a transdisciplinary art practice at the nexus of art and science. My research includes molecular biology, behavioural science and knowledge translation. I am also passionate about the positive benefit art can have on health and, during my residency, I have been conducting a book art project for cancer patients, their carers and staff of the Flinders Infusion Suite.
