Welcome to our new blog where we will document our progress on the Battle of Blister. We will be working on this exciting and challenging project for the next year involving interactions, inflammations, dome constructions and animations. The project is part of an Animate Projects commission which is called Silent Signal and is supported by the Wellcome Trust. Silent Signal comprises of 6 art-science collaborations which explore how the body uses soundless internal dialogues between cells to fight disease. Our scientist is Dr Neil Dufton from Imperial College who is an expert on inflammation.
Battle of Blister will be a short animated film but also along the way there will be a series of interactive installations where we will invite the public to enter inside a dome projection space we are calling Blister Cinema and experience for themselves what it is like to be inside a blister.
We’re looking forward to creating huge swirling microbial environments – and involving the public in epic bacterial battles
