Gallery 1, Castle Mills
An interdisciplinary visual arts and science project by Indian artist and researcher Sonia Mehra Chawla, that engages with the North Seas of Scotland.
This project is the result of a two-year period of research facilitated by Edinburgh Printmakers and supported by Marine Scotland, which informed intensive artist residencies at Edinburgh Printmakers, ASCUS Art & Science, and Marine Laboratory of the Scottish Government in Aberdeen in 2019.
Working at the interface between art, science and technology, exploring entanglements of ecology, industry, culture, politics and aesthetics, the body of work includes new prints commissioned by Edinburgh Printmakers, along with videos, living systems and archival historical scientific material.
The project is presented as part of Edinburgh Science Festival 2020.
