In January 2014 our four micro-residency artists embarked on a collaborative journey with scientists from the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution spending fourteen days over over three months emersing themselves in the research carried out at the centre. Over the course of the residcency the artists used this time to develop a body of work under the title ‘Transmissions’ which was showcased to the general public within a group exhibition ‘Parallel Perspectives’ in Summerhall as part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival 2015 art programme, How The Light Gets In . This exhibition of work susequently travelled LifeSpace, Dundee, returning to Edinburgh to showcase at the Tent Gallery, Edinburgh College of Art.
See below for insights from our participating artists over the course of the micro-residency, revealing the variety of approaches they employed, as they met with scientists to explore the unique research that takes place across the centre.
