Jane Lawson is an artist based in Manchester. Her practice is informed and influenced by her previous experiences as a researcher into corporate ethics at Ethical Consumer magazine in Manchester, co-founder of radical art/design collective UHC, and helping to organise the first three UK Climate Camps.

She makes diagrams to help her understand the economic, historical, geographic and biological processes and structures that shape human society and our impact on the world, such as the global financial system, the Earth’s climatic history, the road to Brexit and the effects of technology on democracy. She also attempts to embody alternatives to the dominant cultural narrative which claims that the present economic system, although flawed, is our only realistic option.
