We Began As Part of the Body

About the event

We Began As Part of the Body is an immersive series of artworks that reflect complex human and ethical questions about our relationship between the body, science and technology.

Inspired by the eczema genetic research laboratory of Prof Sara Brown, this experimental exhibition by artist Beverley Hood leads you through the cells' journey during their short, precious, three week long in-vitro life, from operating theatre to lab to disposal.

These works are presented as a video projection, 3D prints, and an augmented reality app, alongside science engagement and historical materials. 

Presented by Summerhall and ASCUS Art and Science Funded by Creative Scotland’s Open Fund, The Wellcome Trust, Arts & Ethics Research Group, Centre for Data, Culture & Society, and the University of Edinburgh.
