Events are scheduled to take place as follows:

Monday 25th: Marine Science Art Fusion “Diaphanous Beneath” & reception, 4-7pm

What lies beneath? Below the waters transparent surface there is growth. Drawing on research from DCU Water Institute’s Marine and Environmental Sensing Technology Hub (MESTECH) Diaphanous Beneath is a collection of garments which explores and interprets the growth, layering and patterns of the diatom and crab surface. Materials are manipulated, layered and embellished to represent the expansion of organic matter and the clear and translucent quality of the sea.

Growth, action and reaction, layering, repellent surfaces, complex details. Fashion meets Science in this 3-dimensionsal visual exploration of these biofilm forming organisms.

To register, please email jane.wall@dcu.ie, before Friday 15th to register.
