BBA presents FIELD WORKS, an exhibition by AERG (Arts and Ethics Research Group of Edinburgh University) exploring emerging ethical, legal and social issues in medicine and life science research. The exhibition unifies international artists and academics and consists of visual, video, sonic, written, and interactive works that are meant to both challenge and inform, probe and provoke.
“In between confidence and doubt, fear and hope, knowing and uncertainty, fragility and resilience, aggregation and disaggregation. In between entitlements and responsibilities, law and morality. In between boundaries and disciplinary fields. In between the meaningful pauses from one note to the next, one word to the next. In the lab, the studio, the pub, the clinic, the classroom, the office, the market, and the imagination. That is where we searched for insight and inspiration in relation to some of the most pressing issues that confront the connected fields of patient experience, technological innovation, science communication, and social justice.”
