Johnathan Elders


Data driven artist, show off and creator of Cognition Art

Working as a creative in Edinburgh, a city renowned for its art and festivals, there is not only opportunity, but also sometimes over whelming competition.

I have been fortunate to find a home for myself, as an artist working within the scientific community.

It has afforded me so many opportunities. I have worked with academics and researchers, who have inspired me, worked with me to develop content and if I'm honest, sometimes blown my mind by revealing bizarre and wonderful science facts!

Producing creative content for science festivals and events has given me access to amazing venues, incredible publicity and access to audiences who might not have been reached through exhibiting within traditional art spaces, such as galleries

I'm happy to share my own experiences, as well as any of the insights I have gained while developing Cognition Art

I can be reached via my website or the Contact us page
