NIGHT LAB: The National Center for Biological Sciences Artist Residency – Bangalore, India
Austin Irving was the artist in residence at the The National Center for Biological Sciences (NCBS) in Bangalore, India, December 2016 – March 2017.
NIGHT LAB explores the unique structures that make up the NCBS campus. All of the images were made late at night and are a reaction to the artist’s personal interest in buildings and spaces designed to house scientific projects. Being quite far removed from the science world in her own career, this body of work is the artist’s way of connecting to a seemingly impenetrable fortress of knowledge and power.
