Winning pictures from the 2015 Research as Art competition – a unique competition which provides a platform for researchers at Swansea University to convey the importance, emotion, beauty and humanity of their research.

Researchers showcase their research to the world, by providing a brief, captivating description and image. The competition is open to all researchers from undergraduate to Professor, studying, working or supporting research in any field or discipline. This includes Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Engineering and Sciences – everything!

The exposure for winners can be huge, previously achieving a reach of over 50 million people worldwide through press coverage of the project. The exhibition has also appeared previously at the Royal Institution and the British Science Festival

The overall winner is by Dr Sparky Booker from the College of Arts and Humanities, with her entry ‘Rising from the Page’ (see image above), illustrating the challenges of her research on women and justice during the Middle Ages.

You can see Research as Art in the Biomedicine West Foyer, Centre for Life.
