NanoVignettes - nanoscience through the eyes of artists

last modified Jun 20, 2018 02:02 PM
Check out these amazing short films about our students' research, made in collaboration with artists at different career stages

NanoVignettes is a series of micro-films presenting latest research from the EPSRC CDT in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NanoDTC), in an inventive and accessible visual format. NanoDTC students and associates were paired with MA-level artists, and together these teams explored crossovers between their disciplines. Scientists introduced the artists to their labs and research, and the artists then created dialogues and imagery to explain their understanding of the scientists’ work. The micro-films communicate their shared understandings, across unusual divergences in ideas, language, and idiom. By harnessing the creativity of scientists and artists working together, the videos speak to wide audiences on many levels.

Including artists working across many media, and at various stages in their careers, the videos explain scientific concepts using a plethora of imaginative and off-the-wall approaches, from drawing and animation, to 3D constructions. Artists include MA students from Central Saint Martins, Norwich University of the Arts, and Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, alongside three professional artists and one sixth form student.

The series was developed and produced by artist Melissa Pierce Murray and NanoDTC researcher Philipp Koehler.
