Art Science Bath - Collaborations in Art and Research

Artists have infiltrated five depts at the UoB!

Researchers and artists are working together to influence each other's work, study each other's methods, contribute to each other's output., in order to present results and engage you in understanding what they do.

The progress is recorded here in a small way through blogs & drawings, to share with you their experiences, their efforts and their thoughts. Please click on a department's name below to find out what they're up to.

The results will form a touring exhibition coming to a space near you in the autumn of 2016.

We hope you find it interesting, educational and inspiring.
