The UCL Environment Institute, Slade School of Fine Art, and David & Charles Publishers invite you to an evening reception to celebrate
the unveiling of Martin John Callanan’s A Planetary Order (Terrestrial Cloud Globe)
and the publication of Richard Hamblyn’s Extraordinary Clouds
on Tuesday 30th June 2009, 6:30-9:00pm
at the Main Quadrangle, University College London, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT
This two-day symposium brings together scientists, artists, social scientists and policy-makers to explore scientific controversy from an interdisciplinary perspective. From esoteric arguments over the structure of the universe to highly charged public controversies around the use of stem cells, Eye of the Storm will touch on brilliance and ego, dissent and whistle-blowing, big science, high finance, deviant science, the reliability of knowledge and the legislation of uncertainty.
Martin John Callanan as Artist in Residence at UCL Environment Institute, alongside Richard Hamblyn the Writer in Residence, will be presenting.
Organised in collaboration with and supported by The Arts Catalyst and Tate Britain in association with Leonardo/OLATS
