Nigel Helyer

Helyer, Nigel

Dr Nigel Helyer (aka DrSonique) is a contemporary polymath whose work links Art and Science, or more accurately Poesis and Techne in a strong embrace of the environment, identity and cultural history. He has an international reputation as a sculptor and sound-artist who creates large scale sound-sculptures, environmental artworks and inter-active bio-art projects that prompt the community to engage with their cultural histories, identity and sense of place. His works are an open invitation to examine the abstract conditions of our world and our complex relationships to it.

Senior Research Fellow; Maquarie University.
