Superposition Commission

  • 2016
  • ongoing

A £2000 commission to fund an artist, craftsperson or cross-disciplinary group to explore scientific research.

The commission was to create a new work in response to Paul Beales' and Barbara Ciani's research on compartmentalisation in biology.

The commission, and the source of funding, was an outcome of conversations I had with scientists Lorna Dougan, Paul Beales and Lars Jeuken as part of the Textile Proteins and Archibio collaborations and bioLeeds ideas generation process.

I coordinated the commission process and was one of the group choosing the artist.
