“On Growth and Form 2017” Centenary workshop and art exhibition

Anderson will also present her work and the new book next week, in Amsterdam, in occasion of the “On Growth and Form 2017” Centenary workshop, and in an exhibition in Amsterdam at the Museum of Special Collections, UvA, Amsterdam.

The interdisciplinary workshop, which Anderson is co-organising, will run from Monday 23 October – Friday 27 October 2017 at the Lorentz Center, Leiden and the Institute for Advanced Studies, University of Amsterdam.

We celebrate a hundred years since the first edition of D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson’s classic book “On Growth and Form” was published. This seminal publication marks the beginning of modern mathematical biology. The overall goal of this workshop is to bring together an interdisciplinary community inspired by D’Arcy Thompson’s work, with participants from the fields of developmental and mathematical biology, science history and philosophy, mathematics, art, and architecture.

Art and Science Interest Group (ASIG)

At the NHM, the Centre for Arts and Humanities Research has promoted interdisciplinary collaboration, but its future is currently in doubt. By collaborating with Gavin Broad, Pete Olson and other scientists, contributing to Art-Science events with drawing workshops, and with the final project conference hosted at the NHM, we will sustain and cultivate the arts-science culture. Specifically through the initiation of an Art-Science Interest Group at the NHM (Regular meetings since 2016).
