Professor Tony Ryan and Helen Storey, Designer

British Council China 2013

Designer Helen Storey and Chemist Tony Ryan, discuss their collaborative creations in art and science, through a 10 year partnership.

Although both from very different disciplines, the pair came together to create a number of joint projects that bring together an expertise in both science and the arts. Their work has attracted the interest of the world, and include ‘Catalytic Clothing’, exploring how clothing and textiles can be used as a catalytic surface to purify air, and 'The Living Map', charting how the world has responded to this new kind of technology.
