Festival exhibition features MRI scans

X-rays and MRI scans are just two of the medical images used in art exhibitions opening as part of the Belfast Festival at Queen's today.



Two internationally-acclaimed artists, who both use medical imaging technology to create their works of art, open exhibitions for the first time in the UK and Ireland.

French artist Marc Didou has created his layered sculptures using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), along with mirrors.

Didou's exhibition will preview at the Naughton Gallery at Queen's today and will continue until Saturday, December 1.

Meanwhile, German artist Gabriele Leidloff also uses image-generating techniques such as X-ray, photography, and eye-tracking technology to produce stunning images. Leidloff's exhibition also previews at the Naughton Gallery at Queen's today and will continue in the Queen's Film Theatre foyer at 20 University Square until Saturday, November 3.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
