ECO BY MARK DIDOU AT QUEENS UNIVERSITY
The sculpture, by French artist Marc Didou, was acquired by the university in 2008 to both mark the centenary of Queen’s as well as the opening of the library.
Marc Didou is a Breton sculptor, winner of the Michetti Prize in 2005, with many solo and group exhibitions in Europe and elsewhere. Since the 1990s he has used MRI scanning as a new medium for sculpture.
Based on the physics principle of nuclear resonance imaging, thanks to complex software and data elaboration procedures, MRI creates images of the human body particularly used for medical research and diagnosis.
