Stephen Conning graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2000. His studies involved working with kinetic sculpture and video and it was during this time that his specific interests in habitat and the internal environment were cultivated.
Over the past 10 years, Stephen has exhibited his work in various spaces, within both group and solo shows. He has been awarded a work/live residency at the Acme Fire Station, received an artsadmin bursary and has also hosted, as a screening and talk, a retrospective of his work. 

His practice has predominantly focused on exploring ideas around domestic space, working primarily with video. He has been looking at the sculptural quality of various objects and mechanisms in and around the space in which he lives and works and is intrigued by the many perspectives that can be captured and considered. He often works with CCD Micro cameras as he is interested in the microscopic quality of the image produced. He has continued to evolve over time, and has produced work looking at fast motion, multiple screens and the capture of video and still images. In addition he has recently begun to work with web cameras for his web based project Carbonate 1.1.
