Nikki Pugh founded Many & Varied in 2013.
As an artist her main area of enquiry is centred around interactions between people and place: often using tools and strategies from areas such as pervasive games and physical computing to set up frameworks for exploration.
Alongside her creative practice she works to feed the ecosystem within which she operates: working extensively to establish networks, develop audiences and manage events. Through Many & Varied she hopes to instigate rallying calls and practical opportunities for interesting people from across different disciplines to work together on hybrid projects.
