Former asylums as 'mind museums', and the influence of Star Trek on real-life science and tech.

This event will include a viewing of some of our Creative Reactions artworks - art inspired by our Pint of Science speakers' research.

 

ReMIND Museums

Dr Francesca Lanz (Senior Lecturer in Interior Architecture and Design)
What do people remember of their museum visits? How do visitors remember their museum experience and make sense of it? What bodies, interfaces, technologies and devices are active within acts of remembering? This talk will discuss the adaptive reuse of former asylums as 'mind museums' and visitors' memories of their visits.

Treknology - the influence of Star Trek on real-life science and technology

Dr Chris Dows (Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing)
Star Trek has been entertaining viewers for over half a century, and while much of it is very much science fiction, a surprising amount is (or has become) science fact. This talk will look at the main influences Star Trek has had on technology and scientific thinking over the years, and explore how it incorporates the latest thinking and engineering in its shows and films.
