About Space For Art
This project aims to bring engineering concepts to the public through art. Glasgow School of Art’s Digital Design Studio has produced a series of visually captivating displays to accompany the researchers’ work and engage the public, Dr Leon Gurevitch of Victoria University of Wellington’s School of Design in New Zealand has contributed an extraordinary series of astro-photographs, which highlight the splendour of our galaxy and Glasgow School of Art undergraduate Cal Lomax has designed a series of inspirational abstract works based around the concepts.
About Strathclyde Space Institute
Strathclyde Space Institute deals with a number of experimental concepts with a view to protecting the Earth’s long term future. Science Fiction is rapidly becoming Science Fact and the achievements and goals of researchers in today’s space industry would astound a lot of people. As human-kind’s grasp catches up to its reach we are seeing the following boundary pushing concepts given life: from techniques for Asteroid Deflection and Manipulation to Space Debris capture and control with the Stardust Marie Curie ITN Network to research on Future Air-Space Transportation Technology, Computational Intelligence (A.I.) and Optimisation.
