Broad Vision is an interdisciplinary art/science project exploring
vision and perception in relation to microscopy and technological
intervention, from the diverse perspectives of six disciplines across
the University of Westminster. Key questions include the mechanics of
vision, understanding visual information, perception and the
complexities of interpretation, and the influence of imaging
technologies in enabling us to see beyond our natural limits of vision.
Broad Vision brings together specialists from photographic arts, imaging
science, bio-medicalâ€¨ science, psychology, illustration and computer
science. A team of 33 staff and student researchers are exploring key
questions through interdisciplinary collaborations, experiments and
observations. The focus of the project examines how a discerning eye and
visual acuity are pertinent to 'students' subject-specific development;
and explores how seeing through the eyes of others from diverse
disciplines can broaden understanding, â€¨appreciation and engagement of
related subject areas.
The project consists of a gallery residency followed by a multi-platform
exhibition of artefacts and artworks from the experiments and
interactions, documentation of working processes, as well as a program
of public workshops, talks and experiments.
