Hijacking Natural Systems in School
I have been going into schools to show them the research and artwork I have been doing as part of this ongoing project, working in collaboration with an artist , friend of mine , Bernie Rutter.
WE have both worked very differently but have taken inspiration from the wealth of cell imagery I have been collecting. She has been working in a hands on way with the students using acetates, projections, photography and drawing/montage while, I have been working digitally with the students who have produced digital imagery using adobe illustrator and some of them have been making some Flash animations. Its been a really refreshing and fun thing to do. There has been an article in Derby Evening Telegraph of the workshops . We hope some of the artwork created will be used on several Bus Stops in the City and animations shown at Derby Museum & Art Gallery and on BBC Big Screen in July 2011. Here are some of the photographs taken at Woodlands School ( photographs taken by Bernie Rutter)
