Di Mainstone – @DiMainstone

Artist, researcher and creator of The Human Harp Project

Di Headshot

Di Mainstone creates body-centric sculptures, designed to initiate movement and storytelling. Many of these wearable artefacts are inspired by technology. Some of them release sound when handled. Often, they can be modified to create new silhouettes, environments and functionalities. All of them tell a story.

Di’s body-centric devices have been performed most notably at The V&A, The Barbican, The National Portrait Gallery, Eyebeam NYC and the Swedish National Touring Theatre. Each happening is unique, revealing openings for audience and performer encounters. Di’s work can also be seen in films, which she writes and directs.

Di will be reflecting on The Human Harp project thus far and all that she has overcome; taking her own nuggets of advice with her as this ongoing project never ceases to evolve.
