The contemporary British artist, James Dean Diamond and curator Samia Ashraf have been appointed as the inaugural Artist in Residence at the Genome Damage and Stability Centre, part of the School of Life Sciences at the University of Sussex.
Diamond and Ashraf have been permitted access to the work of the research groups and genomic scientists at the Centre, enabling them to consider ideas of genome damage, mutation and their relationship to diseases such as cancer. Translated into a body of photographic work, Still Points & Sea Beams, and an education programme, How is knowledge formed? Working alongside a practical philosopher, Ciara Taylor, the intention is to bridge art, science and philosophy, to establish a collective vocabulary and assist in understanding, exploring and responding to these multifaceted issues.
