[ A LABORATORY OF FASCINATIONS, ACTIVATIONS  -  MAKING STUFF HAPPEN IN THE IN-BETWEEN ]

"In nova fert animus mutatas dicere formas corpora..." Ovid, Metamorphosis  "I have in mind shapes transformed to bodies strange..."

The NOVA Creative Lab project

Joining the dots, in search of new perspectives and unexpected combinations in the edge-lands of ecological and social settings, the NOVA approach is to explore

and re-imagine entanglements between people, places and dynamic processes.

Methods range from practical incubations and nursing creative relationships to the launching of wilder flights of fantasy.

NOVA uses intuitive deep-mapping and fresh thinking to juxtapose:   

personal + political |  city + country  |  real + imaginary  |  possible + impossible  |  insider + outsider  |  facts + imagination

myth + history  |  pre-modern + contemporary  |  light + shadow  |  doing + talking  |  being + walking


The scope of NOVA Creative Lab activities includes: creative consultancy, place/culture/community explorations, imaginative land-use strategies + landscape/ecological-designs, enduring public artworks and ephemeral sculptural interventions


The NOVA Creative Lab was established by Antony Lyons  and operates as an extension of his research-based eco-creative practice.


NOVA associates and past collaborations include: Nick Hand, Kate Smith, Jon Pigott, Iain Biggs, Scott Farlow, Marcus Jefferies, Pandora Vaughan & Val Steel


An offshoot - NOVA formula mostly concerned with production of documentary film and audio works in eco-social settings.
