[Re]Imagining Science was first exhibited at the Grunwald Gallery of Art at Indiana University Bloomington in October 2016. Since that time, many of the collaborative projects have been exhibited in other venues and have been altered as work on the project continues. This exhibit represents six of the twelve projects in the original exhibition.
The various collaborations draw inspiration from a range of images, ideas and theories. Some of the teams use mathematical models, microscopy images, and protein structures in order to illustrate ideas found in science, while others use art making to clarify ways that science can inform the visual. In some of the projects, technology serves to visualize and developnew systems for imaging scientific ideas, while others rely on cells and photo-synthesis to create images, often going back to low-tech and handmade techniques.
This exhibition is sponsored by Indiana University’s New Frontiers in the Arts & Humanities Program. Further assistance comes from the College of Arts and Sciences and the Center for Integrative Photographic Studies, with additional support from the School of Art, Architecture and Design at Indiana University.
This exhibition features artwork made from collaborations by: Katy Borner and Carrie Longley; Martha MacLeish, Malcolm Mobutu Smith and Matthias Weber; Jianme Wu, Suzanne Ressl and Kyle Overton; Betsy Stirratt and Alex Straiker; Margaret Dolinsky and Roger Hangarter; and Dan Kennedy and Caleb Weintraub. [RE]Imagining Science is curated by Betsy Stirratt, Director and Curator of Grunwald Gallery of Art at the School of Art, Architecture + Design, Indiana University Bloomington.
