Seeds of Memory: Art, Neuroscience and Botany

Category: Artist Book
Publisher: Arts & Humanities Research Council
Subject: Digital Photography, Botanical Images, Biological Images, Neuroscience, Memory, Karen Ingham
Description: Karen Ingham in Collaboration with The Cardiff Neuroscience Research Group.
In this rich catalogue of her recent work the artist Karen Ingham brings together contemporary science and historical plant classification, clinical investigation and artistic speculation, scientific objectification and personal association-making to pursue our understanding of memory. Her installations are a confluence of hints and allegations – much like memory itself. Ingham is one of a growing number of artists who combine an intellectual curiosity for science, a delight in the serendipity of history and, of course, a profound understanding of how images are made, presented and continually reinterpreted. Her chosen medium is photography, whether still or time-based, but her camera often lies, or rather, beguiles the viewer to recognise more than one layer of meaning.
