The Arts

DTP students have expressed science through the arts in a number of ways.  Below you will find examples of some of the projects that our students have been involved with:


The Living Earth Globe– Alan Kennedy, Emily White and Michael Cooper – University of Bristol

The Living Earth Team, based at the University of Bristol, organise science-art crossover projects. Here we introduce our Globe: a 1.5m model of the Earth made from recycled and natural materials, built over the course of several days to illustrate how the Earth has evolved and changed through geologic time.  This project featured at Sunflowerfest 2016 and Einstein’s Garden (Green Man festival) 2016.

Here, midway through the third day of the project at NERC’s Into the blue event (Manchester, October 2016) we explain some of the crafty natural features of our Earth, prior to the arrival of the humans!

The Tale of the Turtle and the Plastic Jellyfish – Sarah Nelms, Plymouth Marine Laboratory

A children’s book written by DTP student Sarah based on her PhD research on plastics in the marine environment.
