Janine Fenton: A Nervy Sculpture

2 December 2015 to 23 January 2016

Artist & scientist Janine Fenton has created two sculptural light installations using electroluminescent wire.

The piece investigates how the nervous system develops in fly embryos and illustrates how information passes along the nerves, as seen under a microscope.

Janine is interested in the similarities between how neurons branch out and intertwine to form vertebrae, and the striking resemblance they share with traditional crafts such as lacemaking.

The piece will be available to view outside Studio 1 until 23rd January.
