Art meets Science: journeys to the ends of the earth will offer an evening of talks and conversation exploring how art and science can benefit each other to increase our understanding of the world around us.
The evening will start with two short
illustrated talks, one by Naomi
Hart, Leverhulme artist and the other by Dr Anne Le Brocq, Senior Lecturer
in Physical Geography at the University of Exeter, who will talk about their work, followed by a conversation
and the opportunity for audience members to ask questions.
Naomi Hart was Leverhulme artist in
residence with ice scientists at Sheffield University. She spent one year embedded in the Geography Department at the University of Sheffield working with the ice scientists on their research into the cryosphere and a summer on field research with them in Svalbard, in the High Arctic.
Her exhibition ice report looks at the links between Sheffield and Svalbard and investigates the, often opposing, man-made interventions present in the ice fields of the High Arctic.
Tickets for this event are £3.50 and can be purchased online here.
This evening event is supported by Arts and Culture at the University of Exeter.
This evening marks the launch of Naomi's exhibition ice report in the Exeter Phoenix Cafe Gallery as part of British Science Week, coordinated by the British Science Association, Exeter Branch. The exhibition will run from Thursday 14th March to Tuesday 16th April.
