Hyderabad: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) at Gopanapally has become a meeting point for arts and science. Students from the department of fine arts of the University of Hyderabad (UoH) interacted with TIFR Hyderabad students who had signed up for the Art and Science Dialogue over the past week and created structures of what they saw when speaking to the students.

Biologists Nikhita Pansuri and P.S. Kesavan are researching with cells extracted from the kidneys of dogs which exhibit wound-healing properties. They showed how cells are bound on four corners and migrate towards each other, said Awdhesh Tamrakar, fine arts student.

 

“While they are migrating, a couple of cells migrate first and pull others behind them and then it goes on and on,” said Ms Pansuri. Mr Awdhesh related it to the humans migration. “When they showed me how cells migrate, I saw that it was similar to what humans do. Based on that I created a lab-like prototype,” he said.

Chemistry student Sumit Bawari showed graphene rings to arts student T. Dhaneesh who created graffiti using the fallen sticks fetched from the university campus. Mr Dhaneesh used a subtle sound of instruments used by Sumit in his lab to give it a voice effect.

 

Biologists showed the microscopic wings of housefly which the artists turned into a lens-cape using projectors and microscopes crest. Students from both institutes have been working towards creating a research-inspired art display. This exercise aimed at establishing a dialogue between two seemingly different groups of individuals who have the same goals of conveying their original ideas.

The art display will continue till July 20, and participants from both institutes will give short two-minute talks on the closing day.
