The Royal College of Art and Imperial College are proud to present Artifact, an exhibition celebrating collaborative projects from London’s leading young artists and scientists. Artifact is the brainchild of the Royal College of Art and Imperial College Student Unions. In an attempt to harness potential in the scientific and creative talent of both institutions, staff and students have teamed up, through a scientific/artistic speed dating event, in order to produce a series of collaborative artworks and design pieces around themes in science and engineering.
Work featured will include a critique of the Art / Science interface by new sensations 2011 nominee Charlie Ogilvie, RCA and Daniel Crow, IC.
