Silent Signal (Derby)
Date: Sat, 06 Feb 2016 - Sun, 06 Mar 2016
Venue: QUAD, Derby
Silent Signal takes you on a journey: starting at the microcosm of the infection fighting internal landscapes of our cells, through the personal experiences and opinions of individuals and scientists, to the application of the research in the wider world of infectious disease modelling and genome code sequencing. The works raises questions about what our genetic code is, how our immune system functions, how disease is spread, and what the future applications and impact of the research into these areas might be for us all.
Each work is the result of an artist closely collaborating with a scientist over a period of two years to produce an artistic response to their scientific research. The pairs have also explored the similarities and differences in the way they work and the technologies that they both use.
