Emerging Ideas

John Atkin: Corby Railway Sculpture Project

“My intention is to fabricate the large-scale artwork in stainless steel in order to capture the modern environment to of the railway station, and to use polished surfaces to reflect the movement of passengers and visitors to the station. I also want the sculpture to be a celebration of Corby’s renewal over the many decades of rebuilding since the 1980’s, when its industry and identity were brought to an abrupt halt.”

John Atkin

Changing Mind Changing Body

QUESTION: How do you think future explorations into the mind/body relationship should go, from both the art and sciences? And how do you see any future interactions between these disciplines taking place to further our understanding?

Visions of Light

Light is fundamental. Its properties have been explored and used by both art and science (for example, Einstein’s ‘thought experiment’, James Turrell’s artworks, ‘Big Bang’ theory, laser technology, altering perception and changing brain behaviour).

What is YOUR VISION for the future exploration and use of light?
