Brighton Science Festival At Lighthouse

FEBRUARY-MARCH 2013


FROM THE DISCOVERY OF DNA TO SPACE EXPLORATION, SCIENCE FESTIVAL AT LIGHTHOUSE BRIMS WITH INTRIGUE


LighthouseLighthouse presents a lively month of Science Festival events, which orbit around an art-science residency with David Blandy, who will be exploring DNA’s discovery through a new interactive art project, ‘Helix’, and prototyping a new installation-based work, ‘Anjin 1600: Edo Wonderpark’.

David Blandy is Lighthouse’s artist in residence for Brighton Science Festival. Over three weeks, he will be working on two major projects: Helix, a collaboration with scientist, Adam Rutherford, exploring the history ofDNA; and Anjin 1600: Edo Wonderpark, an installation that retells the story of William Adams, the first Englishman to arrive in Japan in 1600, as an epic intergalactic space adventure. Blandy’s studio will be open to the public during his residency, come and see what he and his collaborators have been working on, and talk to them about their projects.

On 7 February Lighthouse presents a talk by one of the UK’s outstanding science communicators, Adam Rutherford, known for the award-winning BBC programmes, The CellThe Gene Code, and Playing God-. Rutherford’s talk launches the residency at Lighthouse by David Blandy, where they will work together on the Helix project.
