ARTIST-ACADEMIC COLLABORATIONS INTERROGATE OUR COLLECTIVE FUTURES
An interactive sculpture providing an immersive experience of Disobedient AI and experimental knitwear featuring sensor-embedded yarns are some of the academic-artist collaborations on display as part of a new exhibition, King’s Artists – New Thinking, New Making, at the Arcade in King’s iconic Bush House.
Six contemporary artists have been in residence across the cultural community at King's, collaborating with leading academics as part of an innovative project that sees creative practice develop in partnership with academic research. An exhibition of creative responses to these collaborations runs until 15 December at the Arcade in King’s iconic Bush House.
An events programme also runs alongside the exhibition, featuring film screenings, talks and performances.
The collaborations featured are:
- Artist Gen Doy working with Professor Michael Trapp, Department of Classics, on a project exploring the history and cultural mythology of the Strand Lane ‘Roman’ Bath.
- Creative-writer-in-residence, Rebecca Lynch, working with Professor Elizabeth Sklar, Department of Informatics, exploring possible futures for human-robot societies through multimedia stories and digital collages.
- Artist, curator and researcher Dr Kai Syng Tan working with Professor Philip Asherson, Social, Genetic & Developmental Psychiatry Centre, on a commission exploring how mind-wandering relates to visual art and ADHD.
- Design engineer Nassia Inglessis working with Dr Richard Overill, Department of Informatics, on the notion of disobedience in AI and exploring space and structure as intelligent agents.
- Multidisciplinary artist Teresa Albor working with Professor Sir John Strang and Dr Sally Marlow, Addictions Department, on a project exploring the administration of Naloxone, an antidote to heroin overdose, to users by those who love them.
- The Brooke Roberts Innovation Agency (BRIA) working with Dr Matthew Howard, Department of Informatics, on digital knitwear design and the development of experimental ‘wearable’ smart textiles.
