Janet Vaughan is a visual artist and designer who has designed site specific and touring film and theatre works, and created installation artworks for unusual and digital spaces. She often works in collaboration with other artists or members of the public on residency-based projects and uses a variety of media to create her work, much of which is concerned with (often temporary) site specific art & performance for public spaces as part of capital development initiatives or artist-led regeneration of the built environment.

Janet’s work can be characterised as creative investigation of people and
places; concerned with collecting and re-appropriating memories, artefacts and opinions, making playful connections and concocting plausible fictions as the means of informing and framing her responses to spaces. She is one third of Coventry’s acclaimed Talking Birds, and creator of the Company’s webworks, including [helloland*]; described by the Independent as “innovative and unusual...akin to taking part in a David Lynch movie.”
