Description:

This exhibition is the culmination of a one year research project funded by the AHRC in conjunction with the Natural History Museum and the Cambridge Computer Lab, exploring the relationships between sculptural form making and biological morphogenesis through computer modelling. The convergence of the zoological form and computational strategies is guided by a rather unscientific and poetic concept: the chimera, a composite of different animal features which make a link with a long tradition in art where paradoxical conjunctions represent psychological integrations.
