November 27, 2013

LumenNew Antarctic video installations showing at Lumen, part of Winter Shuffle

Lumen is a maze-like exhibition of installations, video, sound, and light, leading visitors through the hidden brooding spaces of St Clement’s Hospital, a former psychiatric hospital and workhouse. A series of exciting and unexpected art interventions marry creativity with resourcefulness, breathing light and sound into the building’s faded Georgian-Victorian grandeur of high ceilings and sweeping staircases.

Artists exhibiting: Tessa Garland, Anne Brodie, Sarah Sparkes, Susan Morris, Juniper Daumier, Paul Insect, Katherine Fry, Bayline Leonard, Anne Robinson, Uliana Apatina

Bio Design surveys recent design and art projects that harness living materials and processes, presenting bio-integrated approaches to achieving sustainability, innovations enabled by biotechnology, and provocative experiments that deliberately illustrate the dangers and opportunities in manipulating life for human ends. As the first publication to focus on this new phenomenon and closely examine how it fits into the history of architecture, art and industrial design, this volume surveys this shift and contextualizes it through comparisons to previous historic transitions in art and design practices, clarifying its implications for the future.
