Experiments with the Invisible _______________________________________ Keynes Library, School of Arts, Birkbeck College, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD Experiments with the Invisible explores the various ways the ‘invisible’ or ‘taboo’ can be portrayed or visualized in the Arts. Previously ‘hidden’ elements from biology, chemistry, and physics are ‘stolen’, reimagined and find visual form. Talks and exhibitions with Jayne Wilton and Adrian Hornsby 11th May 2015 18.00-20.30 For more information email Dr Grace Halden ([email protected]) Adrian Hornsby is a writer who sees stories as music and time in landscapes. His work is characterised by an intensely melodic use of language, and vivid scenes blown across vast interior spaces. Moods range from the subversively funny to the malevolently beautiful. Hornsby’s writing covers a remarkable compass of forms and interests — including theatre, opera, film, essays and non-fiction books; and ranging in subject from teenage runaways on stony beaches to hydroponic tomatoes in the Middle East. Jayne Wilton is a visual artist who explores the breath as a unit of exchange between people and their environments. Her practice uses darkroom processes with drawing, photography, video and sound to capture the usually invisible trace of breath as it moves across a surface. Previous collaborations include working with scientists at CERN responsible for the Higgs boson discovery, and with Physicists at Brunel University during a Leverhulme funded residency (2012). During 2014 she was awarded an Arts Council Grant for the Arts to work with Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to visualise the breath of staff and patients with COPD.
