The Minds exhibition is based around a new dynamic work that uses tweets to determine the nuances in how Dundee’s inhabitants are feeling day to day. This periodic table of emotions suggests the feedback loop that exists between our brains, consciousness and bodily behaviour. Minds showcases research at the University of Dundee to better understand changes in the brain during neurodegeneration, and the ion channels that enable the flow of the brain’s electrical signals. Work by leading artists turns MRI scans into responsive talismans, and sentimental objects into physical reminders of the lesions that can plague the healthy tissue of the brain. Accompanied by work in print and film, Minds invites you to reflect upon your own brain’s physical & mental health.

HEARTS: Preview, Fri 11 Sept, 6 - 8pm
Runs until 23 October 2015, Hannah Maclure Centre, Abertay University Dundee

Featuring: Ingrid Bachmann, Martin John Callahan, Jennifer Kelly, Catherine Richards and Martin Snelgrove alongside the scientific research of Dr Nikolai Zhelev.

The Hearts exhibition arises from an ongoing body of cardiovascular research at Abertay University. Miniature beating hearts are developed from human stem cells reprogrammed to grow has tiny heart organs which are then used to investigate prevention and cures of heart disease. Hearts is an exhibition that explores scientific and artistic research relating to our life-giving organ, examining local ground-breaking heart disease research and sharing the work of internationally renowned artists whose practice is concerned with the heart in transplantation, the heart as a system, the heart as a poetic object.
