‘blurring the line between art and science – through the body’
Artists (Morgan Sinton-Hewitt, Anna Dimitriu, Melissa Fisher, Elizabeth Murton and Heather Barnett) working alongside scientists (Dr Lewis Goodings, Betsy Lewis-Holmes, Sarah Bearchell), a musician (Holly Barker) and dancers (Amici Dance Theatre Company) engaged in an art-science exploration – the project provided participants with an opportunity to work with their peers, creatively explore how their bodies’ function mentally, physically and psychologically and how this has been understood historically. We developed skills and knowledge relating to art, biomedical science and communication and shared these with the wider community.
