2016 Exhibitions

Silent Signal


Thursday, 17 March to Saturday, 19 March 2016


12.00 - 17.00


Vivid Projects, B5 5RS



Silent Signal is a group exhibition bringing together six artists with six leading biomedical scientists to explore genetics, cell biology, immunology and epidemiology through animation.
Each work is the result of an artist closely collaborating with a scientist over a period of two years to produce an artistic response to their scientific research.

Sited between Vivid Projects and University of Birmingham, the works raise questions about what our genetic code is, how our immune system functions, how disease is spread, and what the future applications and impact of the research into these areas might be for us all.

Silent Signal is devised and produced by Animate Projects, and is supported by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award and the Garfield Weston Foundation, and presented in Birmingham by Vivid Projects.
