Artist in residence for senior lecturer
Les Bicknell, Senior Lecturer for BA (Hons) Textile Design has secured Arts Council funding for an artist in residence at the Maxwell Centre NanoDTC in Cambridge for a year. Les has designed his project, unfolding thinking, to deepen a discussion of the connections linking contemporary art and innovative scientific thinking. Les will be working inside the labs at Cambridge University, making a space and engaging with research students to establish a body of new artwork interlacing with aspects of nanotechnology. His aim is to build a closer relationship with the scientific community, developing audiences for the arts and recognising the potential of the arts in science, technology, engineering and maths. More information about the project is available to view online.
