AHRC funded researchers Dr Charlotte Sleigh, University of Kent and artist Sarah Craske from Science in Culture Theme Innovation award, ‘Metamorphoses: Gaming Art and Science with Ovid’, were featured on ITV Meridian news on Tuesday 21st October.
The project led by Dr Sleigh, University of Kent working alongside scientist Simon Park and artist Sarah Craske, will ‘read’ the book through a biological lens, analysing the bacteria, fungi, viruses and skin cell it has picked up as it has been passed from reader to reader. Their findings will be displayed in a final exhibition. Further information about the project is available here.
