Art and science are often seen as two different entities with very separate ideas of what constitutes research. The MA Art in Science programme at Liverpool School of Art and Design aims to bring together artists and scientists to explore collaborative approaches in art and science.

Increasingly, collaborations between artists and scientists are a feature of our cultural landscape. Traditionally this relationship has been perceived as art in the service of science, whereby artists use their skills to visually interpret or communicate complex scientific ideas, objects or forms. However, a hybrid form of research has emerged over the last 30 years where artists and scientists are interested in the creative possibilities and speculative futures of the intersection of these two cultures.

This programme provides an opportunity for collaborations across the visual arts and the world of scientific enquiry, and encourages transdisciplinary creativity based on the skills that you bring with you to the programme and those you develop during your research experience.

The programme has been established under the guidance of Professor Caroline Wilkinson, Director of the Liverpool School of Art and Design and the Face Lab. Professor Wilkinson is an experienced practitioner in the collaborative fields of Art and Science with a specialist interest in Forensic Art. She has worked with museums, forensic institutes and archaeology groups around the world. Other members of the programme team have specialist interests in Medical Art, Facial Identification, 3D Technologies, Critical Visual Studies, Curatorial Practice, New Materialisms, Cultural Anthropology and Medical Humanities.

As a student on this course you will explore art-science project briefs in unexpected forms in readiness for application in the world of work. You will enjoy access to a number of established LJMU research centres and will work collaboratively with other students, practitioners and researchers across art and science disciplines. As a graduate you will be able to apply critical and practical skills, research techniques and understanding in your chosen career.
