Artist Kate Sully and researchers from the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) talk about their collaboration on the Brain Orchard exhibition.
Fresh from an 8-week residency in Fremantle, Australia, artist Kate Sully returns to Sheffield with an exhibition exploring the latest research into Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).
Using digitally printed images of the brain, these vibrant, large-scale artworks are a creative response to the work of scientists at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN).
Kate worked closely with Dr Simon Bell, Dr Daniel Blackburn and PhD student Manmohi Dake. Their research looks at AD from the celluar level to discover how brain cells interact, how brain waves are changed, and how a person’s health can affect their brain structure.
The exhibition is situated in Futurecade, available to view both online and in person at the Millennium Gallery.
