Movement: An Interdisciplinary Experience

Friday 23 May 2014, UCL Art Museum

The evening event explored movement through time and space, across landscapes and inside our bodies.  Inspired by the Octagon Gallery’s 2014 exhibit Knowledge in Motion, Student Engagers used UCL’s gallery and museum spaces to investigate movements internal and external, mental and physical, historical and contemporary. Highlights included Stacy Hackner, ‘Going Through the Motions: Everyday Biomechanics’; Felicity Winkley, ‘Walking or Mind-Walking: reflections on movement & experience’; Sarah Savage, ‘Five Days Later: The rapid progression of pandemic disease’; and Kevin Guyan and Ruth Blackburn, ‘Blockages in the System: health research in postwar Britain’. Drinks and further discussion followed.

The program for Movement is available here.
