Artist Kate Sully and researchers from the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) talk about their collaboration on the Brain Orchard exhibition.
About the project
Fresh from an 8-week residency in Fremantle, Australia, artist Kate Sully returned 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 provided 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.
