Visiting artist talk: Art, snails and aquatic crisis
  • Jill Craigie Lecture Theatre, Roland Levinsky Building

Save event

Radix was formed in 2011 by Deborah Robinson and David Strang (artists) and biologist Simon Rundle. As transdisciplinary collaborators we embrace inquiry that invites a deep questioning of a the relationship between self (humans) and environment. Our interest is in developing projects that move away from anthropocentrism. These include multi-species interactions, aquatic creatures, experimental systems and sited-ness, noise and evolutionary theory. The creative tensions between aesthetics and scientific thought are important to the development of artwork.

Deborah Robinson is Associate Professor (Reader) in Contemporary Art Practice at the University of Plymouth.

Simon Rundle is Professor of Aquatic Biology at University of Plymouth.

Today's events

Visiting artist talks

All visiting artist talks are open to all students/staff and the general public and are held on Tuesdays at 16:00 at the Jill Craigie Lecture Theatre, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth unless stated otherwise.

Fine art at the University of Plymouth offers a unique opportunity for students to follow their own path through a range of subject areas. We describe ourselves as ‘broad-based’ which means we are especially supportive of students who wish to work across or between areas, at the cutting edge of art practice.
