Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

A NEW art and science ex­hi­bi­tion is set to open at the Univer­sity of Dundee.

Tra­jec­to­ries is the first ex­hi­bi­tion of 2018 at the univer­sity’s LifeS­pace gallery and will fea­ture work by Charles Robert Har­ri­son, Char­lie Mur­phy and Stu­dio Senses.

Ob­jects from the univer­sity’s col­lec­tions, which were se­lected by the artists, will pro­vide fur­ther con­text to the ex­hi­bi­tion which ex­plores how per­cep­tions of space af­fect ges­tures, balance and move­ment.

LifeS­pace cu­ra­tor Dr Sarah Cook said: “Artists are skilled in con­sid­er­ing how we per­ceive the world around us and some of the work pre­sented i n this ex­hi­bi­tion has come di­rectly from re­search into neu­ral pro­cesses that con­trol hu­man move­ment and balance.

“The ex­hi­bi­tion sug­gests how vis­ual art­work can con­trib­ute to sci­en­tific re­search.”

Mr Mur­phy said: “Art and neu­rol­ogy share com­mon ground in test­ing the bound­aries of per­cep­tion.

“It is fas­ci­nat­ing to be given such a priv­i­leged in­sight into the cre­ativ­ity and im­pro­vi­sa­tion in­volved in de­sign­ing and chore­ograph­ing t hese tests to re­veal the mech­a­nisms in our bod­ies that en­able us to stay up­right or to fall over.”

Tra­jec­to­ries will run at the univer­sity un­til Satur­day June 2.

LifeS­pace is open on Satur­days from 11am-5pm and by ap­point­ment dur­ing the week.
