    Beneath the Surface

    April 6 - 29, 2017

    "We are amidst a revolution in scientific imaging, especially for brain science. Our growing capability to make the invisible visible is revealing previously unknown worlds of hidden beauty within us. As we explore these worlds we are making profound discoveries about disease, consciousness, and ourselves. It also reminds us of the connection between all living things - unfolding microscopic structures beneath our skin reflect those in the depths of the ocean. Strangely, it is our exploration of the sea which has enabled us to illuminate the living brain. The ability to create images of microscopic structures and living brain cells has been made possible through the use of fluorescent proteins discovered in jellyfish and corals."

    Luke Maninov Hammond presents 'Beneath the Surface', an exhibition of fine jewellery and objects which explore the shared patterns of life. Inspired by Luke’s work in neuroscience, delicate forms of ordered complexity simultaneously represent the invisible worlds of cellular machinery, marine life, and dynamic connectivity within the brain. More broadly, the works reflect the unfolding nature of life, inviting us to contemplate on our coming out of the world, rather than coming into it.

    Luke Maninov Hammond is a Brisbane based jeweller and neuroscience imaging specialist, who's work has been exhibited internationally and featured in fashion magazines. In addition to jewellery and object fabrication, Luke is recognised for his contributions to teaching, applying advanced imaging techniques in neuroscience research and publishing. He works alongside neuroscientists investigating topics such as learning and memory, and diseases like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.
