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.

Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
