The Art of Science [Behind The Scenes Series]

LIVELab is known for its world-class research in the field of the arts including music, dance, theatre and more. This new series ‘The Art of Science’ takes you behind the scenes and into the minds of our researchers and scientists. It’s all about telling the stories behind LIVELab research studies. This series shows that our scientists and researchers are artists themselves, just as much as the artists they research.
