London LASER 17 hosts Richard Bright on Visualising Thought and Elena Cologni on theIndisciplined.


Richard Bright is an artist and writer. After studying Fine Art and Physics he went on to become the founder and director of The Interalia Centre in 1990, an organisation that provides an international forum for the exchange of ideas between the arts and the sciences. Its aims are based on the belief that far from being mutually exclusive activities, art and science represent different yet complimentary ways of looking at and understanding the world. He is also the editor of the online magazine Interalia Magazine, launched in 2014, which explores the interactions between art, science and consciousness. Drawing on the disciplines of Art, Buddhism and Neuroscience, he will explore questions relating to ‘how thought can be visualized’.



Elena Cologni is an artist working with live, installation and performance art practices. She has a PhD in Fine Art from University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins, where she was also Post-Doctorate Fellow (Arts and Humanities Research Council 2004/06), a Research Fellowship at York Saint John’s University (2007/09), and is now associated to the Commonwealth Intercultural Arts Network (University of Cambridge) (2013/), and Lecturer at Lincoln University. Her presentation will give an overview of the in(ter)disciplinary umbrella project rockfluid created in collaboration with the Faculty of Experimental Psychology, Cambridge University. She will focus on the topic of ‘disruption’ both in processes of memorisation and in the function of participatory approaches, drawing on recent projects exploring social dynamics among participants. Her active account will include a series of practical and physical exercises to experiment with (and subvert) underpinning psychological, sociological and cognitive aspects.

Defiant Specimens

Preserved natural specimens have been collected for centuries for the study of natural history, human anatomy and the advancement of science. In the exhibition Defiant Specimens, the artworks of Susan Feindel and Cindy Stelmackowich strive to expand the materiality and visualization of scientific specimens. There is a special attention to wonder, speculation, vulnerability and the limits of human understanding and expression in their works. They blend images and ideas from nature, natural habitats, and old dictionaries and scientific textbooks that cross mediums and flip between the tangible and implied.
