Welcome Disturbances presented the diverse practices of the UCD Science Artists in Residence. Since the pilot residency in 2012, the artists in residence have engaged with scientists in neuroscience, cognitive science, marine biology, plant biology, geophysics, paleobotany, advanced optical imaging, spectroscopy and astronomy.
Their conversations led to an inspiring body of work, through a mutual openess to communicating across the traditional boundaries of the disciplines. The diversity of the work reflected the open and dynamic nature of the project and included sculpture, installation, painting, drawing, video and performances.
We held a rich programme of public events around the exhibition which included live performance, panel discussions and visiting international speakers, with participants from other sectors in education, government, culture, industry and environment. These events were designed to create debate and allow participants to find out more and share their perspectives in relation to subject matter of shared concern that arose in the wide reaching conversations between the artists and scientists.
