‘This View of Life’ showcases the melding of artistic and scientific disciplines in this year of celebration for Charles Darwin. This group exhibition presents recent work from contemporary Canadian artists and features collaborative projects created with scientists from the University of Guelph.

The investigation of evolutionary theory is not limited to the lab, field or fossil bed. Darwinian theory, after a century and a half, continues to inspire creativity which perpetuates the evolution of these ideas in their own right. Forms of expression can be compared to instruments of observation, magnifying some aspects of evolution while masking or distorting others. These exhibits offer unique perspectives into the nature and scope of biological novelty, organic variation, and evolving life forms.

The reception featured artwork, biological specimens, and presentations by project participants. Artwork is exhibited at the Ed Video Gallery and in the Atrium of the Science Complex for the duration of the show.

The setup was also GigaPan-ed: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/35023/
