Imagining science

Monday, 18 March, 2013 - 09:00 to Friday, 22 March, 2013 - 05:00

Science is the systematic study of the world around us, and art is the expression of creativity. Imagination is what links the two. "Imagining Science: Scientific investigation and the art of imagination" is a science-themed art exhibition of the artwork of three scientist-artists, Sally Hunter (Cambridge), Immy Smith (Reading) and Michelle Anderst (Seattle). The exhibition looks at the way science and art investigate the world around us, and how imaginative thinking contributes to each in different ways, with a focus on collaboration. In addition to artworks, the exhibition includes electron microscope images of everyday objects, fluorescent images of cells, and opportunities to take part in games and drawing activities. One of the artists (Immy Smith) will be available to chat 12-2pm daily, and an exhibition catalogue featuring high quality printing of artworks from the exhibition is being sold in aid of Brain Tumour research and Alzheimer's disease research. Open: 9am - 5pm daily Mon-Fri. Parking available. Cover Image: 'Memories of a Machine' by Immy Smith (UK) and Luca Rossi (Italy)
