Bio:

Luke Maninoy Hammond’s practice is focused on reimagining biological form to explore themes of impermanence, consciousness and the connection between all living things. Through the study of organic structures that define life he creates novel objects with the intent to instill a sense of wonder whilst also probing at complex spiritual and scientific ideas. Inspired by my continuing work in biomedical imaging and neuroscience research, these works consist of fine jewelery, sculpture and printed images.

He currently works at the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) at the University of Queensland where he has been managing their world leading neuroscientific imaging facility for the past 8 years. Here, he works with researchers studying consciousness, sleep, Alzheimer’s disease, Schizophrenia and other themes in neuroscience. His role at QBI involves teaching and exploring new methods for imaging neurons and brain tissue along with developing novel ways of exploring the beautiful images captured using these techniques.
