Ele Carpenter (UK) is a curator and writer. Her curatorial research into Nuclear Culture is a partnership between Arts Catalyst and Goldsmiths College, University of London, where she is a Senior Lecturer in MFA Curating. Her Nuclear Culture research focuses on nuclear aesthetics from the atomic sublime to radioactive divinity; the relationship between social and material concerns in the nuclear cycle; and how the nuclear affects our perception of deep time within the Anthropocene. In 2014 Carpenter curated the Actinium exhibition and forum in Sapporo with S-AIR, and organised field trips to nuclear sites in Horonobe and Fukushima, Japan. She is currently researching a major exhibition for the BildMuseet, Umea, Sweden, exploring nuclear culture, deep time and unknowing, which will open in 2016.
