Carol Mancke

is an artist, architect and educator who has worked in architecture practices in London, San Francisco and Tokyo.  At the Albany Bulb her ongoing research focuses on people's conceptions of nature and the human-made. Carol created a social practice artwork with Trena Noval called Uncaptured Land: Circling Conversations that asked visitors to collect and reflect on materials at the Bulb ranging from seaweed to trash. (She's putting together the roundtable for the conversation in the photo above.)

Carol has taught architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, the Nagaoka Institute of Design, the University of Western Australia and Kingston University London. Working at the intersection of art and cities, Carol seeks to create thought-provoking interventions in situations and places of everyday life through individual and collaborative projects. Her artwork has featured in group and solo exhibitions in Britain, Japan and Australia, including the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennial in 2009. In 2011-2013 she was artist in residence at the Central Institute of Technology in Perth Australia. Her work with Machina Loci can be seen here.
