Jaden Hastings' work focuses upon the intersection and interplay of art and science - from philosophy to praxis - merging scientific and artistic research, challenging the norms of both disciplines, and moving them into new spaces for exploration. Her research fuses and folds together the fields of machine learning, bioengineering, space exploration, new media art, and ethics.

Jaden’s career in scientific research spans over 15 years, and rooted in her longstanding roots as a biohacker. She is alumna of New York University, Harvard University, the University of Oxford, and Central Saint Martins with advanced degrees in Biology, Bioinformatics, and Fine Art. Her artwork has been exhibited in venues across Europe, India, Asia, North America, and Australia, and is a founding member of of both the Lumen and London Alternative Photography Collectives.
