Leah Heiss


Leah Heiss is a Melbourne-based artist and designer whose practice is located at the nexus of art, design and science – using advanced technologies to develop potent human scale projects. Her process is deeply collaborative, working with experts from nanotechnology through to manufacturing.

Current projects include new forms for hearing technologies, biosignal sensing jewellery, emergency jewellery for times of crisis, swallowable devices to detect gas fluctuations within the body, and ongoing experimentation with next-generation materials such as magnetic liquids, memory metals, and electricity conducting textiles.
