Gail Davies joins artists in tour of sites of scientific and technological importance

Unconventional fieldwork with The Office of Experiments

On Saturday 23rd of January, in an unconventional piece of geography fieldwork, Dr Gail Davies joined artists Neal White and Steve Rowell, from the Office of Experiments, and around forty participants for a tour of sites of scientific and technological interest in Southern England.  The tour marked the end of the 'Dark Places' exhibition at the John Hansard Gallery, University of Southampton.  The exhibition examined how artists are evolving strategies on the boundaries between conceptual art and documentary form, exploring the relation between places of knowledge production, the materiality of technoscience and the notion of experimental sites. Dark Places was commissioned by The Arts Catalyst and co-curated with the Office of Experiments, John Hansard Gallery and SCAN.

UCL Geography has provided support for The Office of Experiments' Overt Research Project, along with The Media School, Bournemouth University.  The Overt Research Project is led by Neal White with Steve Rowell and Lisa Haskell. The aim of the project is to develop an open database of research sites and institutions of science and technology in the UK.
