McDonald is a visual artist working in painting, drawing, film and sound. Her works explore the origins of life on the planet and the information held within plant life. In ‘A space and time outside,’ she investigates Herbarium plant specimens brought back from the 1825 Franklin Arctic Expedition to explore germination and the potential life force of the seeds. Her practice entwines with science and endeavours to open up ways to learn from the past.
