Artist Tim Kelly was looking for ideas for a project that would use his newly acquired lithography skills. Microbiologist Mike Kelly gave Tim some microscopic fungal images and he was off and running. The result of the collaboration is a collection of stone lithographs that are recognizable to a microbiologist as having a fungal motif, but they are sufficiently stylized that they cannot be identified as any particular species of fungus: the essence of science seen through an artist’s eyes. Although the project started as a father/son collaboration, it became Tim’s project.
What happens when scientists and artists collide and collaborate? Do the languages of science and art overlap, or do they communicate the same concept in a very different way? Find out with this art exhibition, Science Collides. These works began when artists spent a weekend at Science World at TELUS World of Science hanging out with some scientists at our monthly Meet a Scientist weekend.
Exhibition ends Sunday, October 9
