A series of two-way interactions between these practitioners mediated over the summer will be showcased and interrogated at a themed discussion that will take place during the Ideas Festival on 31st Oct.
The artists involved are:
We are all excited to find out what common and contrasting experiences emerge from this collaboration between artists and scientists.
