Silent Signal is an ambitious group exhibition that brings together six artists working with animation and six leading biomedical scientists.

About

Our bodies perform a soundless internal dialogue between cells using the universal cypher of genetics. These signals are fundamental to how our bodies operate and how they adapt to fight disease.

Silent Signal is a group exhibition of new animated works that explores the science of genetics, cell biology, immunology and epidemiology.

The exhibition takes you on a journey: starting at the microcosm of the infection-fighting internal landscapes of our cells, through the personal experiences and opinions of individuals and scientists, to the application of the research in the wider world of infectious disease modelling and genome sequencing.

The works raise questions about what our genetic code is, how our immune system functions, how disease is spread, and what the future applications and impact of the research into these areas might be for us all.

Each work is the result of a close collaboration between an artist and a scientist, exploring the similarities and differences in the way they work and the technologies they each use.
