This was an inspiring happening last Thursday evening which used the exhibition Imago - A dragonfly in motion as a focal point for an expansive discussion on the importance of connectivity and dialogue between Art and Science.
Dr. Katy Barrett, Curator of Art Collection, Science Museum.
Dr Huai-Ti Lin, Principal Investigator, Lecturer in Neural Engineering & Bio-robotics, Imperial College.
Myself- Oliver Smart, Artist, Puppeteer.
The Chair was Dilys Maltby, Founder & Senior Partner, Circus.
A heart-felt thanks to all who were involved in and attended this wonderful celebration of the poetic and the analytical.
In particular I wish the thank Bonnie Gibbons and the team at Circus for making this happen.
(A big thank you also to Dr Ben Price, Head Curator of Small Orders, Natural History Museum, who, although absent from this particular discussion, was very much present as a true collaborator within the Imago project.)
