Art and science installations
Animalia Obscura Out of the Dark photographic installation by Jonathon Clay
Clay’s images showcase the weird and wonderful specimens within the collection. Shining a focused beam of light, Clay narrows our gaze to only a handful of creatures amongst the vast array of material held by the University for the academic pursuit of science. Aesthetically, this material offers so much more. Who can resist the deep mysterious appeal of the preserved Spanner Crab Ranina ranina or the distant and contemplative stare of the taxidermied Rhesus Macaque Macaca mullatta? Allow yourself to be drawn into how Clay sees the specimens on the shelf.
