Banner image: Care_Is_Exhausting by Damien Robinson. Description: A portrait digital image of thin and weaving purple lines on a black background. The purple lines are faint, barely bright enough to be seen. Weaving in and out of each other, they create a partial orb-like shape, with lines forming structures of light down the middle.


Latest Shape collaboration: Damien was a featured artist in 2022's Shape Open, In The Mirror 

Artist Statement: Damien Robinson is a visual artist working with digital and found media, mixing analogue approaches with high-tech equipment and strategies. She re-purposes and recycles found and donated materials, exploring and intermixing contemporary and historical technologies. She often collaborates with other artists and is a co-conspirator of The Agency of Visible Women, an intersectional womxn artist network based in Southend-on-Sea.

She has developed works for traditional galleries and unconventional environments – from wildlife reserves to fire training towers to data work with slugs. Repurposing and misusing processes and technologies (often through lack of access to learning mechanisms as a d/Deaf artist), allows her to explore new outcomes.
