Event details

The Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) is delighted to support an open discussion on multidisciplinary research, teaching and practice.

This discussion will precede a guest lecture by NTU Fine Art alumnus Wolfgang Buttress and NTU physicist Dr Martin Bencsik on The Hive: creating the UK Pavilion for the 2015 Milan Expo .

The theme for the World Expo was Feed the Planet, Energy for Life. Wolfgang's design highlighted the importance of pollination in the food chain and drew on honeybee research, carried out by Dr Martin Bencsik.

The UK Pavilion brought together art, science, sound, architecture, engineering and landscape through an immersive and multi-sensory experience that signifies the important and intrinsic relationship between bees and humans.

The Hive project is a wonderful example of an unusual and very successful collaboration between different disciplines at NTU and beyond.

If this inspires you to want to work across disciplines, please join us to discuss how we can make this a reality. We will begin with very brief presentations of ongoing projects and then discuss what we can do to support further activity like this in the future.

Get in touch

If you would like to be involved in the open discussion please email David Fairhurst to confirm your interest.
