Broadvision

The Broadvision art/science project offers students across the university a range of opportunities for art/science collaborative research and interdisciplinary learning. Since 2010, the project has produced exhibitions, published books and articles, and presented at international conferences, festivals and symposiums.
Every year a group of undergraduate students are recruited from across the university’s arts and science courses. Through interdisciplinary exploration students become teachers, researchers and producers as they engage in questions probing at the heart of biology and psychology, technology and creativity, art and science. Projects to date have investigated the role of imaging technologies on vision and perception, worked with scientific image archives as a stimulus, and responded to themes of data, truth and beauty.
An accredited Art/Science Collaboration module can be awarded to students in their second year of study, alongside opportunities for extra-curricula involvement and professional development.
Participating courses to date include photographic arts, photography and digital imaging, clinical photography, biotechnology, illustration, psychology, human and medical sciences, biological sciences, multimedia computing, interactive product design, animation, cognitive science, molecular biology and genetics, and physiology and pharmacology.
