Blind Drunk in the Laboratory - Artist Talk with BoredomResearch

Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 18:00

Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth

PONToon Project- Aspex Gallery Artists Talk Event

Artist collective boredomresearch have been working in some of the world's leading scientific laboratories, collaborating with psychologists, computer scientists and biomedical scientists.

In this talk the artists will reveal the fascinating world of art and science collaboration - from mice with schizophrenia and cacti with cancer to plans of dominating the universe with robots inspired by honeybees.

Since November 2018 the artists have been in residence at Aspex as part of PONToon (Partnership Opportunities using New Technologies fostering sOcial and ecOnomic inclusioN). The artists will discuss the progress of their residency, and what the world's first large scale study of human generosity means for those less fortunate.

About boredomresearch

boredomresearch is a collaboration between British artists Vicky Isley and Paul Smith, working with digital media, the artists give form to unseen aspects of the biological world. This fascination with digital tools as a means to explore, experiment and interpret the mechanics that escape immediate perception creates a strong synergy with scientific disciplines. Much of their artwork centres on advancing understanding of the interactions between human culture and its sustaining environment.
