The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, a 95 mile section of stunning Dorset and East Devon coastline, has been described as a linear laboratory for the earth sciences. The rocks, beautifully exposed and accessible along its length, sequentially record 185 million years of the Earth’s history and display a superb range of active coastal processes. Whilst the public explore all the wonders that this coastline has to offer, scientists are busy gathering data to help understand its formation and inform its future management.
The exhibition highlighted some of the new techniques and technologies being used by earth scientists to map and monitor the coast and explored how artists are also working with scientists, interpreting and visualising data, presenting research and adopting new technologies to create new work. The exhibition took place at The Allsop Gallery, Bridport Arts Centre from 18 September – 23 October 2010 and The Exchange, Sturminster Newton from 30 October – 1 November 2010.
The 2010-2011 artists can be viewed here.
“A fascinating blending of art and science, particularly liked the 3D sculptures and the US air-lanes animation. Thank you for an inspiring show.”
“Most unexpected – excellent – the air map was excellent.”
“How great to have artists and scientists doing good things together.”
