Exhibition of art and science
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.
