Welcome to the second edition of the new seminar series about art and science at Lund University.
The conversation will focus on the ongoing collaboration between curator and visual artist Ashley Middleton (US) and former ESS PhD student Dr. Swati Aggarwal, initiated and matched by the new artist in residency programme, Nanocosmic Investigations, organised by ESS, Wisdome / Malmö Museer and Inter Arts Center.
The new residency where artists meet scientists has been launched in July at ESS. Ashley Middleton is one of the seven selected artists out of 47 applicants, that have presented clear and relevant themes with a high artistic value.
Ashley Middleton, independent curator and visual artist, is working in a range of media including photography, sculpture and installation. Her projects are an expression of her ongoing research into the unconscious; its manifestation in human behaviour, and how those behaviours produce, and alter, our physical and digital worlds.
Dr. Swati Aggarwal is a structural biologist with a specialisation in sample preparation for neutron crystallography.
The residency is part of the collaborative project Wisdome Innovation, funded by the European Regional Development Fund among others.
