Neurogenesis is a new immersive installation by designer and social artist Helen Storey and developmental biologist Kate Storey in collaboration with Holition. Images of nerve cell generation emerge from a dress formed with materials worn by time. With its central motif of neuron birth, Neurogenesis challenges us to think about how the nervous system forms and changes, connecting us to our lived experience of the function and degeneration of neurons within our bodies.
Neurogenesis comes 20 years after Helen and Kate created Primitive Streak, an art work which toured 50 venues in 8 countries and was exhibited in Dundee in 2002.
Neurogenesis is part of the VRC at 20 programme at Centrespace celebrating the history of DJCAD’s Visual Research Centre in Dundee Contemporary Arts.
This exhibition is supported by the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) at University of Dundee's School of Life Sciences.
