Spark

Artist in Search of a Medium

Spark follows three artists with innovative ways of looking at art by expressing themselves and finding meaning in the least expected places. The first story sees the world through fresh eyes with Jonathon Keats as he undertakes his most ambitious artistic experiment to date: Looking for God -- in a petrie dish. Then find out how Laura Splan's early fascination with the biological sciences has informed her choices of both subject and medium. Finally, installation artist Chris Cobb shows the how and why of transforming a neighborhood bookshop into a work of art.
