Julie Freeman

Combining the odd: carp behaviour, nanotextures, empathy detection

symposium 1

From fish tagging to dog's ear flap analysis to fMRI scanning, Julie's work makes use of scientific hard- and software technologies to explore biological aspects of the world. The extent of the artist/scientist relationships formed during the creation of these projects depends on opportunity, need and funding. Julie will discuss the process behind the involvement of scientists and scientific organisations in her past projects and reflect on the positive and negative effects on each party and the final outcome. She will also discuss plans and expectations for a deeper integration of technological processes into her future work, and a hope for a greater bidirectional knowledge sharing with her potential collaborators, during her forthcoming residency at the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Centre at Cranfield University.
