Cryptic: Art and Science returns for its second year, curated by Neus Torres Tamarit and hosted by the evocative Crypt Gallery on Euston Road. Building on the success of the inaugural exhibition in 2016, Cryptic features an international selection of nineteen artists, including postgraduate students and alumni from Central Saint Martins, Slade, Westminster University and Middlesex University.
A discussion around the subjects of creativity, intuition and process in art and science, organised by Ben Murray and CLOT Magazine, will take place on Sunday 26th November at 2pm. The discussion panel is conducted by Ben Murray with guests Adam Peacock, Professor Arthur I Miller, Dr Max Reuter, Natsai Audrey Chieza.
Cryptic examines the relationship between art, science and technology, and features artworks that use technology and science variously as medium or message. Explore digital and kinetic interactive artworks, virtual reality, and mixed media installations, all set in the idiosyncratic spaces of the Crypt Gallery.
The rich and diverse subject matters include representations of time, mutation mutated into abstracted expression, exploration of form and material, genetics and evolution, synthesis of emotions into sculptural and crystalline forms, the multiverse, religion through the olfactory sense, technology, control and new materialities, social media, climate change, and plastic waste.
