Derby Market Place Vinyl Artwork
Look out for Jo Berry’s exhibition of multi-layered sculptural lightboxes, digital drawings, vinyl artwork, animations and film at Derby Museum and Art Gallery from 23 July to 30 October 2011.
Jo Berry spent six months working with scientists at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, studying how a “hunger” hormone stimulates the body’s cells, potentially paving the way for new drug treatments for obesity and diabetes by “turning on and off hunger”.
She turned this research into a stunning series of digital drawings and lightboxes to promote the connection between art and science.
