Wonderland - Working at the art-science boundary
Wonderland is a project that has challenged Tony and his collaborator Helen Storey to devise beautiful materials and methods to demonstrate chemistry in a visual arts setting ? but crucially, their dialogue has challenged the underlying nature of science, it's societal, cultural and artistic context, leading to the development of real world applications. In the next CS session, Tony will talk about the project and its outcomes.
