The Creative Angle

Visual Art

How does the public interpret visually the invasion of synthetic biology into neuroscience?

We have heavily integrated visual art into our project, especially the website, to help engage the public and stage our ethical ideas. Our team includes two artists-in-residence who have helped design thought-provoking images.

This Gallery page exhibits primarily poster art pieces that have been created by team member Fong Yi Khoo. We have incorporated these art pieces into our project by using them as promotional posters, speed debate event posters, presentation and so on. You can find other art pieces created by our artists on every corner of our wiki page.

Normal Brain vs. Alzheimer's Brain

We used this main poster on our T-shirts and on our promotional material. It was imortant to show graphically the damage wrought on a brain by the onset of Alzheimer's Disease, and at the same time, display the vibrancy of the solution that we propose. The watercoulour blots are the figures of gial cells and their processes spreading through the brain. The dark mug from the brain mirrors its stem. It is round, like the figure of a closed circuit of our treatment (we do not propose that the transfected microglia should perpetuate themselves into the second generation). It symbolises the plasmid, and the marks of coffee mugs through the late nights we spent on the project.
