Jane Edden is a British artist whose work is a synthesis of science, technology and art. Her initial inspiration came from the relationship between nature and culture and the desire to collect and categorise. For the England & Co exhibitions Sartorial (2004) and After a Fashion (2005), Edden made a series of works using materials from nature and insect specimens. Works in her 2006 exhibition at the gallery incorporated photography and sound.
