Organized and Curated by
Melissa Gwyn and Scott Lokey
Sesnon Gallery, UCSC
4:30-6:30p.m. followed by a panel discussion with faculty artists and scientists.
Full Disclosure is an inside look at the trial and error of scientists and artists through an intimate survey of their processes. An exhibition of art and artifacts, Full Disclosure views the practice and products of science—theoretical models, computational data, molecular structures—through the perceptual matrices of the arts revealing parallels and divergences between the two disciplines. Experimentation, creativity and failure, become the ultimate subjects in this unexpected juxtaposition of media, motives and forms.
The exhibition, organized by Associate Professor of Art, Melissa Gwyn and Associate Professor of Chemistry, Scott Lokey features collaborative projects by UCSC arts and science faculty and lab researchers. The projects in the exhibition are the result of creative exchange, shared material and ideas and working methods between artists and scientists. The exhibition includes lab books, models, photography, sculpture, painting, micrographs, installation and computer animation, along with signage explaining the research behind the science, and the ideas behind the art.
