Drawing on research into Morphology, the study of form and shape, and highlighting the work of mathematician Alan Turing and biologist D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson, this performance lecture investigates one of the most commonly recurring shapes in the natural world: the Hexagon.

A vast image bank built up by the artist collects examples of where this shape best presents itself, from the archives of the Natural History Museum to geological sites where hexagonal patterns form in prismatic structures, such as the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.

As part of a year as Writer in Residence, Rachel Pimm presents this video as part of their ongoing project Morpho Chemical.
