    Built to break

    Lifelogging

    Do you count?

    From critical to creative, LIFELOGGING asks ‘where do we go from here’ and question whether we can record and analyse happiness, beauty and aesthetics the same way we record footsteps and heartbeats. This exhibition will explore novel methods for capturing data, for visualising, and for analysing the insights that new data affords us about ourselves and society.

    BLOOD

    NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED

    Our human preoccupation with blood runs deep, and as a species we’ve had plenty of time to prod and poke, paint and proselytise about blood. So what remains? What mystery persists about blood, and how does this exhibition probe it? Why are we still interested in blood?

    STRANGE WEATHER

    FORECASTS FROM THE FUTURE

    We are obsessed with the weather. It is a powerful, shared daily experience, offering us an immediate talking point with which to engage our fellow citizens. Yet when we talk about climate change the sense of guilt or powerlessness is enough to kill the conversation. By engaging both weather and climate in a playful, provocative way, we hope to leapfrog over current polarised public debates.

    FAIL BETTER

    A FREE EXHIBITION OF BEAUTIFUL, HEROIC AND INSTRUCTIVE FAILURES

    The goal of FAIL BETTER was to open up a public conversation about failure, particularly the instructive role of failure, as it relates to very different areas of human endeavour. Rather than simply celebrating failure, which can come at great human, environmental and economic cost, we want to open up a debate on the role of failure in stimulating creativity: in learning, in science, engineering and design.

    Grow Your Own

    Life After Nature

    GROW YOUR OWN… is a new exhibition created by Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin that invites you to consider some of the potentially ground-breaking applications and uncertain implications of synthetic life. Tackling the provocative questions that designing life raises, GROW YOUR OWN... gives you the opportunity to help shape future discussions around synthetic biology - an emerging approach to genetic engineering, bringing together engineers, scientists, designers, artists and biohackers to design ‘living machines’.
