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-medical
 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, 
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.


BROAD VISION SYMPOSIUM: LEARNING AT THE INTERSECTIONS
