Collaborations with Artists

An archive of images and thoughts arising from collaborations with artists, from Bristol’s own Alex Lucas to Luke Jerram (Withdrawn) to Fujiko Nakaya (Fog Bridge).

The Invisibility of the Sea: In 2017, the Cabot Institute and the Brigstow Institute hosted a variety of workshops on ‘Perspectives from the Sea’, bringing together scientists, engineers and humanities scholars to share personal reflections, their experiences and methods, and their understanding of the sea.  This was so inspiring that we commissioned artist Rodney Harris to further explore these topics, The Invisibility of the Sea, displayed in the Earth Sciences Gallery.  He produced a fantastic variety of pieces, including the one below.

We were so inspired that we collected his work and our reflections into this fantastic pamphlet, featuring especially powerful pieces from Rod and the project initiator and inspiration, Laurence Publicover. Laurence and my Earth Sciences colleague Kate Hendry also wrote a powerful piece for the Conversation. The working paper can be downloaded here: The Invisibility of the Sea working paper-1hukxho
