This is a collaborative project lead by Benjamin Dalton who is researching the concept of plasticity as articulated in French philosophy with a focus on the work of Catherine Malabou on the plastic brain. Benjamin, funded as part of Kings College London Collaborative Scheme for Early Career Researchers, brought together neuroscientists working on neuroplasticity from the Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute and ceramic artist Amanda Doidge, to explore themes of plasticity from the different perspectives of art, science and philosophy. This project explores the artistic, clinical and philosophical cross fertilisations that might result from a reconnection of current neuroscience with its artistic and cultural roots, asking what innovations these dialogues might propose to both research and clinical practice in the neurosciences, and creative practices in the plastic arts.

Ceramics, Neuroscience & Philosophy:
An E17 Art Trail Idea Sparks Talk
Thursday 22 February, 7.30-9pm
Gnome House, 7 Blackhorse Lane, Walthamstow
Following on from the exhibition, Amanda Doidge tells us about her involvement in Benjamin Dalton’s PHD project 'Narrating Plasticity' and the experimental ceramic work she has produced in response to engagement with the neuroscientists from the Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute, King’s College London. Benjamin Dalton reflects on how working with Amanda and the resulting dialogues between the laboratory and the artist’s studio changed how he approached his PHD.
