The Hunt for Submarines in classical art: mappings between scientific invention and artistic inspiration

Principal Investigator: Dr Mike Pringle, University College for the Creative Arts at Canterbury, Epsom, Farnham, Maidstone and Rochester

This interdisciplinary project is concerned with the use, within visual arts, of advanced imaging ICT developed in certain medical and military arenas. Taking a structured information gathering approach, the project will: conduct a focused survey of relevant scientific research into such technologies; elicit a number of clearly- defined visual arts needs; and produce mappings between the two. The projectís detailed information output will be extremely valuable for visual arts research, and the approach taken, using a bespoke, reusable method, has relevance in the exchange of ideas in other cross-domain projects, both in visual arts and in the wider arts and humanities community.
