Caroline Packham is an Australian artist interested in how art and creative-practice influence problem solving and futures thinking. Her practice explores connection to environment, community, cognition, creativity and climate change. Her roaming projection works have evolved out of five years of experimentation with hand-held projectors. Caroline has several years experience in participatory environmental art, science and engineering projects, environmental learning and change programs and research and evaluation. Caroline was the lead researcher and writer for A Travellers' Guide to Ecocentres, essentially a guide for localised participatory environmental projects.
