Since 2005 scientist Professor Tony Ryan, University of Sheffield, and artist and designer Professor Helen Storey, London College of Fashion, have worked together to create real solutions for a more sustainable world.
The Wonderland exhibition brings together the worlds of art and science. By working together, Ryan and Storey have been able to use their different backgrounds to spark new ideas on the application of science and discover practical solutions to current ethical issues.
This unique exhibition was first shown in 2008 - 2009 in a showcase of talent, imagination and creativity. It toured from London, to a city-wide event in Sheffield and then to Belfast.
The project developed a number of products, in varying stages of completion. The exhibitions in Sheffield will demonstrate two of these: dissolving bottles and disappearing dresses.
Events and exhibitions will also be held at Sheffield’s Millennium Galleries and the University of Sheffield.

• New technologies in the sciences and arts
My work widely spans the arts, sciences and new technology fields. I produce projects which illuminate aspects of science and well being in ways that directly interact with the public, with the broad aim of helping individuals reach their full creative potential. More recently I have begun to focus my creative energy on working in collaboration with other Universities to solve global problems.
