Erin Dickson


Erin Dickson, born in South Shields, England, is an artist based in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. Dickson is known for her use of glass, her fascination with cultural and emotional connections to architecture and her exploration of the experience of space from individual perspectives.

Dickson graduated from the Architectural Association in London, and completed her PhD combining architectural phenomenology, technology and glass at the University of Sunderland, in 2015. Dickson combines phenomenology with architecture and digital technology to create sculpture, installation, and performance that considers the emotional and sensorial qualities of spaces. Dickson has exhibited worldwide, including Saatchi Gallery (2013), London; Fondazione Berengo (2015), Venice; and Bullseye Gallery (2016), Portland, and was awarded an inaugural Technology Advancing Glass grant from the Glass Art Society (2014).
