Scientific research is a collaborative affair. Teams from across academia and industry work in partnership to solve problems and test new methods. What goes on in the University of Dundee's School of Life Sciences building is a testament to the interdisciplinarity required for ground-breaking research.
Signal / Noise: Imaging/Drawing is an exhibition of drawings and animations by Manchester-based artist and researcher Daksha Patel including recent work based on medical and scientific data and imaging technologies. Her work is shown alongside artefacts and works of art selected by Daksha from the collections of the University of Dundee.
This exhibition is the result of a project in which artists working with animation were brought together with six biomedical scientists, initiated by Animate Projects. Six video animation artworks represent a more scientific perspective on topics such as immunology, diseases, genetics, cells and sleeplessness, aiming to generate new ways of thinking about the human body.
