Tanio arts project



M-SParc worked with artists in order to bring science to the local community. Art is an increasingly popular way to help people interact with science, and as companies strive to become more innovative, creative, and so on, the gap between science and art is narrowing. The 'Tanio' arts project brought together 6 artists with different elements to create something special.

The work was showcased at the National Eisteddfod, 2017. Did you come by the Science and Technology tent to say hello? If so, you may find your picture below!

Rachel Rosen and Rebecca Coley-Jones- Ignite

Rachel8 Rachel3 Rachel9

Rachel and Rebecca attended the Eisteddfod to showcase the work done with students from Coleg Menai on recycling and re-using waste material from building sites. Rachel created moulds using the waste, and children had a lot of fun interacting with these and oming up with their own ideas about renewable materials.

Honey Jones-Hughes is a Welsh artist who creates work that encourages discussion on social and political issues. Her project, 'Match', includes working with scientists and academics and studying the journey women have been on in the field of science and industry in Wales.

Owen Davies, a lecturer at Bangor University, is working on 'Pi' in partnership with local furniture maker Tom Vousten. This aspect focuses on working with three primary schools to develop an exciting piece of art which marries digital and hand work, to be located at M-SParc. The work can be viewed here.


Iolo Penri, a photographer from Caernarfon, studied the relationship between energy, industry, and the landscape of Anglesey. 'Fflach' came together with the help of local photography clubs and the local community.

Rachel Rosen, who worked on Tanio, focused on transforming materials and objects. By working with Rebecca Coley-Jones, an expert in zero waste, she research opportunities for reigniting and reusing waste from the M-SParc site during development. Rachel also held a series of workshops with Coleg Menai students. M-SParc has a ffocus on minimising waste, and this continues now that the building is operational with a low-carbon building which is energy efficient and gives consideration to the environment.

Mei Mac focused on the 'Sblash' element. As a graphic designer and cartoonist, Mei Mac worked with students from Ysgol Esceifiog, Gaerwen to develop a series of poems and slogans that are now visible in the M-SParc building. It is important that children get the opportunity to interact on the development of the building, as M-SParc wishes to inspire and show them that it is possble to develop high-level careers here in North Wales when they're older. Below you can see some of the work that took place.
