Academy Award-winning artist Brian Knep and his wife, Natalie Andrew, unveiled their interactive art installation Thursday at Levine Children’s Hospital.
Knep, whose work has appeared in “Jurassic Park” and “Mission: Impossible,” is artist-in-residence at Harvard Medical School. His wife is a biologist and engineer at Harvard as well as an artist.
The new artwork was paid for through an endowment made possible by Carolinas HealthCare System through the McColl Center for Visual Art.
Knep is a media artist whose works range from large-scale interactive installations to microscopic sculptures of nematodes.
He was the first artist-in-residence at Harvard, working side-by-side with scientists to explore alternative meanings and ways of connecting to the world.
Andrew is researching creativity, backyard biology, paradigm shifts and the ingredients of inspiration. She creates living-sculptures and jewel-paintings, and currently works at both Artisan’s Asylum in Somerville, Mass., and at Harvard as a full time artist/scientist.
