A researcher at Imperial College London, Dr. Neil Dufton, is showcasing his science inspired art Auto-Biology at a new exhibition at Imperial College. I always love seeing science in art… especially when it has such a relevant commentary! Follow the artist on twitter @neildufton or at his website here.

Featuring a collection of 10 unique prints, the exhibition is an illustrative autobiography of Dr Dufton’s research over the last five years.

Inspired by the works of Salvador Dali and psychedelic music posters from the 1960s, Dr Dufton’s work blends lively, surreal images with concepts from his scientific research. The artwork draws on various controversial topics, such as animal research and stem cell therapy, as well as portraying scientific techniques, equipment and processes. Through his art, Dr Dufton hopes to open up the scientific debate to the wider public.

Auto-Biology is free to attend and open to all. It will run from October 2014 to March 2015 in the Centre for Co-Curricular Studies, 3rd floor of the Sherfield Building in Imperial College London. The opening night, on Thursday 16 October, will take place from 19.30 to 22.00 and is open to members of the public. The artwork is for sale.
