Futures Lecture Series | The Poetry and Music of Science

Please note this event is on 14 Mar 2019
THE POETRY AND MUSIC OF SCIENCE
Professor Tom McLeish University of York  

In this lecture Professor Tom McLeish will undertake a rare exploration of the deep creativity and imagination required in science, as necessary as its formal logic. Some aspects of science and art bear close comparison –examples are: the art of the novel and the art of scientific experimentation, the use of visual thinking in painting and physics, the abstract worlds of music and mathematics. The lecture eavesdrops on conversations over a three-year interdisciplinary project between scientists on how new ideas arise, and also with artists’ and composers’ discussing their own creative processes. Medieval philosophy, neuroscience, musical analysis, the physics of light and theology are all brought to bear on the question of how minds imagine and create the new, and how art and science both contribute to what makes us human.

Incredible distance – An original audio-visual installation

Incredible Distance is a collaborative arts project for adults which forms part of our three-year Wester Hailes residency. An open invitation was made to adults living locally and, over six weeks of sessions at WHALE Arts working in collaboration with composer Suzanne Parry and workshop leader Emma Smith, participants created an original audio-visual installation which explores the sonic and visual identity of Wester Hailes, capturing snapshots of daily life through the collection of found sound, imagery, film and original musical composition. Woven into an intricate tapestry of sound and imagery by composer Suzanne Parry and artist Ewan John, the result is part tone poem, part dreamscape, which loosely reflects 24 hours in the life of Wester Hailes.

Incredible Distance will be displayed at:

The Society of Scottish Artists | Sunday 23 December 2018 – Thursday 17 January 2019

WHALE Arts | Tuesday 22 January – Saturday 9 February 2019

The Fruitmarket Gallery during the Connecting Communities Exhibition | Tuesday 12 – Saturday 16 February 2019
