Add Exeter - Art in the dock, Science in the stocks: Collider - exploring hybridity to your Itinerary

Significant Edges by Pery Burge.

This free event, open to all, is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science.

It is the latest in a series of annual art/science workshops, which bring together artists, scientists and social scientists to discuss the way science is represented in art, the ways in which art draws on science for inspiration, and how each explores and makes sense of our culture, communities and the natural world. The aim is to break down some of the barriers between disciplines and to de-mystify some academic and artistic endeavour.

Among those taking part are Devon artist Pery Burge and historian of the life sciences Dr Staffan Müller-Wille. Pery Burge is artist-in-residence in the thermofluids lab at the University of Exeter - some of her work is currently exhibited at the Forum on campus. Dr Müller-Wille will speak on ‘Hybrids in History’. Other speakers include independent designer and art-director Pete Jeffs, talking about art-science books and magazines, and Dr Mitchell Travis of the University’s law department, who will use science fiction to explore cultural representations of the inter-species embryo.

More details and an programme listing all the talks can be found at http://www.genomicsnetwork.ac.uk/egenis/.

The drop-in workshop begins at 12 noon and will continue throughout the afternoon with presentations interspersed with lively debate, until 5.00pm. Admission is free and no booking is required. People are welcome to attend for the whole afternoon, for just one session, or even for just one presentation.

Organised by Egenis, the ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society, based at the University of Exeter.
