Lucy Sabin (she, her) is an artist-researcher whose work explores the interplay between media and environments with a particular focus on themes of atmospheres, breathing, and embodiment. From mail art to online exhibitions to in-person workshops, her projects tend to revolve around participatory processes which invite audiences to explore the spaces between art and science, representation and expression.

After freelancing for several years as a website designer and yoga instructor in London, Sabin undertook a Master of Research in Communication at the Royal College of Art. Since then, she has been selected as an Arts Council England awardee of Developing Your Creative Practice. Her work has also featured on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Arts. She has lectured and tutored at University for the Creative Arts and Arts University Bournemouth.

Sabin is currently working towards an interdisciplinary PhD across the UCL Department of Geography and Slade School of Fine Art with support from the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (2020-2024). She is interested in projects that open up academic topics for more diverse audiences by facilitating experimental forms of engagement. Her studio is based at Brighton Youth Centre.
