Description

8 Jun 2016, Wed 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Single Screen, BLock 43 Malan Road

Dr John van Wyhe, historian of science and the Founder and Director of Darwin Online will speak about Charles Darwin’s study and obsession with barnacles. His study of these dull, unsung encrustations of rocks reveal secrets: from the extinction of giant animals in South America, to the build up of earthquakes in the Andes. His research uncovers the true diversity of the living world and even suggests the historical evolution of sexuality.

This Exhibition (de)Tour is part of Charles Lim Yi Yong: SEA STATE at NTU CCA Singapore.
