Project Details


The aim of the project was to use atomic force microscope images, produced at the University of Portsmouth, as an inspiration for artists to make a number of creative responses in various media. Micrographs of human hair and DNA were the main focus since these familiar materials offer a wealth of structural complexity and also elicit emotive responses due to their contribution of ‘self’. The artworks produced therefore were not expected to necessarily resemble the original images. Dr James R Smith, five artists and members of Thornhill Art Group made up the project Team.
