I enjoyed being disturbed by the latest film from Yorgos Lanthimos.  Dogtooth was a triumph and Lobster wonderfully strange - The Killing of a Sacred Deer lingers in the mind - the distanced dialogue and otherness of place contribute to the 'wrongness' and are just the start of the tone created which enables the viewer to see and be changed when judging those around you. And then there was What happened to Monday where because there are multiple leading characters at any point anybody can die (brutally) whilst the plot can veer off to any point.

The work created by exploring the process of microscopy within unfoldingthinking has two iterations - the prints within the corridors of the building around the large electron microscopes that inspired their creation and a bookwork. The bookwork was chosen as one of the top ten this year in Sarah Bodman's an list and now in a circular fashion recognised within the Department of Material Science and Metallurgy.
