Abstract

Drawn in Light is a visual documentation of artist Jo Berry's ‘Hijacking Natural Systems’, an arts and science project devised in collaboration with Dr Nick Holliday and Tim Self of the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Nottingham Medical School. The project, funded by The Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England, involved Jo working in the University laboratories a day a week for six months on a research project which formed the basis of a new body of work for exhibition including digital drawings, animations and laser cut illuminated artworks. Photographer and filmmaker Andrew Robinson was commissioned to creatively document the development of the project and the resulting artworks. In this self published book Andrew brings together a range of visual material from the project including original scientific imagery; Jo’s drawings, animation stills and illuminated artworks; and his own photography and film work, some of which has been specially produced for this publication. Sponsorship for the publication costs was obtained from Zeiss Microscopy who distributed copies to clients and industry contacts as part of the grand opening of their new imaging labs in Munich, Germany. The book has also been displayed alongside the film in exhibition and is available to via the online Blurb bookshop.
