This is a Leeds Light Night event, which arose from a collaboration between Deborah Gardner and Anke Bruning-Richardson organised by the Soapbox: Science & Art Platform (Zoological Society of London and University of Leeds). They found, during discussions on their research areas, they share interests in ideas of cellularity, multiplicity, propagation, and migration as well as a consideration of correlations between the micro and the macro, from the cosmos to the interior body. In their first public engagement event during Leeds Light Night 2017, Deborah made sculptures with neon helium balloons as a means of testing to what extent art works can operate as working tools, which may cultivate insight and understanding of biological sciences and cell migration as a response to Dr Anke Bruning-Richardson’s most recent research activity in advancing our knowledge of cancer biology and her current project ‘ Targeting glioma migration’.
