The Singapore Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience held a conference on the 26th and 27th of September. While the main conference was a forum for Singaporean scientists with an interest in brain function to discuss recent advances in their work, a large part of the programme was aimed at engaging with the wider public.
In a first event of its kind in Singapore, and as a means of engaging the public, the conference featured art that has been created as a result of interaction between Singapore-based artists and scientists. We call this first segment of the collaboration “Art Infiltrates Science”.
In a second instalment of the project, the artists will once more showcase the art created in response to the conversations they’ve had with their respective collaborator in neuroscience. The 4 Artists have teamed up with scientists to throw a fresh view on their questions, methods and interests. Taking a fresh view on what scientists bring to society, the artists represent the layperson’s view of what happens in the lab.
The artists are Singapore artists Debbie Ding, Rush Rubin and ila and French artist Isabelle Desjeux. The project is led by Isabelle Desjeux.
