Science Gallery review 5 Users say 4/5 Rate it

The newest and most innovative museum to open its doors on Trinity campus, the Science Gallery takes a fresh, fun and lively look at the applications of science across a number of walks of life. There is virtually nothing that these guys are not into: whether it's commissioning exhibitions of techno-thread clothing (meaning clothing that responds, thinks, even grows on its own) or 2008's superb Lightwave exhibition (back again in 2009) to displays of robotic art (that is, robots that are built to create art) and the series of Raw debates on subjects as diverse as the future of biofuels and the efficacy of anti-depressants.

Basically, the Science Gallery is a completely fascinating, laudable new venture, and anyone with even a passing interest in the appliance of science should go take a look. There is no permanent exhibition but there's usually something going on, so it's always worth dropping in (check the website of what's on when). Even if it's just to sit down with an excellent cappuccino in the small on-site café and enjoy the light, white and, in all senses, bright surroundings.

Disappointingly, the gallery s not open weekend between exhibitions. Not clear at all on the website, and judging by the other wet, wind blown disappointed people standing outside, it wasn't just us!

I am an artist based in Cork city. I am working on a series of sculptures based on extinction. Fosil kind of objects i am making using bog oak and local stones. Please keep me posted as i would be interested in showcasing my new work. One of the sculptures which is a fish bone is going to be at the sculpture in context national botanic garden dublin this September. Cheers
