Art + Science in Conversation
This new science exhibition is led by three unique artist commissions, which were developed through extensive conversations and close collaborations with Crick researchers. The resulting artworks offer alternative ways of exploring and describing the microscopic patterns that so intrigue the Crick scientists.
This exhibition provides a unique glimpse into three intricate developmental patterns studied at the Crick, each one introduced by a unique artwork: a poetry and soundscape piece by Sarah Howe and Chu-Li Shewring, a sculpture and film by Helen Pynor and a film created by a young filmmaking group called KaleiKo.
In this context, deconstruction is a fundamentally creative process. By taking patterns apart, both the artists and scientists are seeking new insights into the puzzle of how the complexity of the human body arises.
