Event description

Description

Art meets Science: journeys to the ends of the earth will offer an evening of talks and conversation exploring how art and science can benefit each other to increase our understanding of the world around us.

The evening will start with two short illustrated talks, one by Naomi Hart, Leverhulme artist and the other by Dr Anne Le Brocq, Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography at the University of Exeter, who will talk about their work, followed by a conversation and the opportunity for audience members to ask questions.

Naomi Hart was Leverhulme artist in residence with ice scientists at Sheffield University. She spent one year embedded in the Geography Department at the University of Sheffield working with the ice scientists on their research into the cryosphere and a summer on field research with them in Svalbard, in the High Arctic.

Her exhibition ice report looks at the links between Sheffield and Svalbard and investigates the, often opposing, man-made interventions present in the ice fields of the High Arctic.

Dr Anne Le Brocq is a highly respected ice scientist looking at ice sheet modelling, particularly in the Antarctic. She is perhaps best known for her video game where penguins explain ice flows.

Tickets for this event are £3.50 and can be purchased online here.

This evening event is supported by Arts and Culture at the University of Exeter.

This evening marks the launch of Naomi's exhibition ice report in the Exeter Phoenix Cafe Gallery as part of British Science Week, coordinated by the British Science Association, Exeter Branch. The exhibition will run from Thursday 14th March to Tuesday 16th April.
