Earlier this month MOSI hosted a after work soirée to kick of Manchester Science Festival. The room was filled with Manchester’s scientist, chemist, biologist, artist, and bloggers. Whom all got to be part of internationally acclaimed artist Marcus Coates’s latest audio-visual installation – sharing our best impressions of bird calls. The Sounds of Others, a Biophonic Line. Inspired by the findings, writings and inventions of the famous scientist James Lovelock, his new exhibition explores the sounds of many different species of animals to reveal unimagined connections between different vocalisations.
Bez from The Happy Mondays was there with a 3D Printed model of his head – printed by Hobs Studios Manchester to feature in the 3D:Printing the Future exhibition opening for the Manchester Science Festival supported by Siemens at the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) on 23rd October.
