Experiments in Art & Science
Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge
An experimental project with Kettle's Yard, Cambridge, and artists working with the Gurdon Institute to develop projects inspired by scientific research.
David Blandy worked with the Livesey Lab at the Gurdon Institute, specifically scientists Alessio Strano, Ashley Campbell and Lewis Evans, observing their visualisations of human brains grown from stem cells, using this research as a way to think about consciousness, identity and technology.
Curator Harriet Loffler and Scientist & Public Engagement Manager Hélène Doerflinger discuss the project at Kettle's Yard.
