Nina Pope was born in 1968 and studied at Edinburgh College of Art before completing a Master's degree in London. In 1995 she began collaborating with her partner, fellow artist Karen Guthrie. Their early career was marked by technological innovation combined with a socially-engaged and inclusive sensibility - for example, their live online travelogue A Hypertext Journal (1996) was an influential precursor of the blog. In 2001 they formalised their collaboration as the not-for-profit arts practice "Somewhere", their current work spans public art and film-making, and their focus remains on the widest possible application of creativity to enrich and inform public life. In 2008 they won the first Northern Art Prize and in 2010 their new media installation ‘An Artist’s Impression’ was acquired by the Science Museum (London).
Pope also maintains an academic post in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art and both also free-lance as visiting tutors, in arts advisory roles and in professional development for artists.
