Sam Treadaway is a British artist whose multidisciplinary practice includes, sculpture, book-arts, and olfactory scent-based installations. Making use of existing frictions between aesthetic form and utilitarian design, he edits and re-aligns found objects, structures, and systems thus generating new outcomes. The interplay between the arts and other fields of knowledge, such as philosophy, science, and music, often inform his working processes.
Sam also curates and produces Revolve:R, a multidisciplinary international collaboration based on visual correspondence which explores a transmission of ideas via physical and tactile forms of communication (such as printed matter and the postal service) and includes a parallel interplay online. Each Revolve:R edition is presented as aa bookwork publication. Revolve:R, edition three is currently in development and due to be published in 2018.
