KQ Private View: Deconstructing patterns: Art and Science in conversation at The Francis Crick Institute

22 March 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

- Free

The Knowledge Quarter is delighted to invite staff from Knowledge Quarter organisations to the next in our series of private breakfast views. It will be on this occasion hosted at The Francis Crick Institute. KQ staff and partner organisations will have the opportunity to have an exclusive look at the Crick’s new exhibition Deconstructing patterns: Art and Science in conversation.

About Deconstructing patterns: Art and Science in conversation.

Whilst we are surrounded by patterns we can see with the naked-eye, this exhibition provides an introduction to the surprising and beautiful world of microscopic patterns that can only be revealed by powerful tools and technologies.

Presented over three ‘zones’, Deconstructing patterns explores different molecular and cellular patterns studied at the Crick, each one introduced by a unique artist commission.

The artworks offer an alternative way of visualising and describing the forms and functions that so intrigue our scientists. Within each zone, visitors can listen in on conversations between artists and scientists as they reflect on different ways of seeing.

Placing discussions between artist and scientist at the heart of this exhibition offers a unique route in to understanding the fundamental role that patterns play in the growth and development of our own bodies. Deconstructing patterns also provides a window to the pioneering research carried out at the Crick.

Visitors will enter an exquisite and fascinating world of microscopic patterns that are invisible to the naked eye and yet offer potentially life-changing scientific insights.
