FaB Ignites Research






Graphene artist Nicolas Strappini‘s response to research by Dr. Marcin Mucha-Kruczynski.

Seven researchers from the University of Bath have collaborated with local artists to communicate their research in new and exciting ways.

Curated by Fringe Arts Bath, the artists were invited to submit proposals for artistic reinterpretations of the researchers’ Ignite talks. The work is to be presented as a series of short videos in the 44AD Artspace in Abbey Street, Bath, from 27 January to 1 February, accompanied by an exhibition, talks, science/art workshops and more.

Funded by the University’s Public Engagement Unit,  the following researchers took part in the project:

  • Dr Philippe Blondel (Department of Physics)
  • Dr Stephanie Diezmann (Department of Biology & Biochemistry)
  • Professor Chris Frost (Department of Chemistry)
  • Dr Marcin Mucha-Kruczynski (Department of Physics)
  • Dr Tim Rogers (Department of Mathematical Sciences)
  • Dr Ian Walker (Department of Psychology)
  • Professor Alison Walker (Department of Physics)

Both the artists and researchers will be available to discuss their experiences of collaborating together at an event on Thursday 30 January, 6.30 – 9pm.

Located in central Bath, 44AD artspace is a contemporary arts venue established to support emerging contemporary artists and their work and to encourage the public’s engagement with the visual arts. Offering a supportive platform to independent visual artists, providing affordable studio spaces, 44AD welcomes all sectors of the community, providing an accessible insight into the whole process of art production and display.
