What happens when art and science meet? What happens when artists and scientists meet?
This exhibition celebrates just what can be created when artists and scientists get together. You’ll see work where artists are taking inspiration from science, where scientists are using art to show their work in a new light and artworks that have been produced from exciting collaborations. Examples from this exhibition include visual interpretations of quantum dynamics, nano-technology, genetics, the cosmos and the diseases of old age.
Come and see science, and art, in new and interesting ways.
Broadly speaking, Art is an accepted part of culture and society, but science is not. The British Science Association (BSA) – a charity founded in 1831, has as its vision a world where science is at the heart of society and culture. This exhibition, organised by the Bristol & Bath branch of the BSA, is part of the BSA’s work in bringing that vision closer to reality.
The BSA’s mission is to support, grow and diversify the community of people interested and involved in science; and to strengthen their influence over science’s direction and place in society.
Judy Rodrigues: Circadian Gardens
Judy is an artist living near Bath with a studio at Spike Island in Bristol with strong connections to the Isle of Wight as it is where she spent her childhood.
During the winter of 2014/15, Ventnor Botanic Gardens and its micro climate generously provided her with a 6 month ‘on site’ studio and the facilities of the Garden to develop a new series of work.
The project was kindly supported by an Arts council research grant and she is showcasing a small selection of ‘studies on paper’ produced during the residency.
