Seeds of Memory: Art, Neuroscience and Botany

£15.00

Product description

This is the book for the exhibition by Karen Ingham, 1 May 2006- 10 November 2007

'Interdisciplinary collaboration with Bernard Moxham and the Neuroscience Research Group Cardiff University School of Biosciences, and the Co-operative on Plasticity, Learning and Memory, an international interdisciplinary research group supported by the Medical Research Council. The research questions corresponded between botanical and biological sciences and the arts, with particular emphasis on dementia, neuro-degenerative disease, consciousness studies, and the history of the botanic garden and plant taxonomy; a cross-fertilisation of art, neuroscience, botany, pharmacology and museology focusing on memory as a uniquely individual act.

Artworks were conceived as material artefacts embodied with theoretical meaning, and involved a ‘layering’ approach, incorporating biological and botanical images captured by scanning and confocal microscopy techniques, alongside photographic plant still life images made using conventional and digital photographic technologies.

Time-based works made via a layering process incorporating biological image sequences of synaptic neuronal activity in the hippocampus; site-specific, requiring negotiation at each location, referencing particular modes and methods of inquiry, and individual site histories and curatorial agendas.'
