Exponential Growth

From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :
 
Exponential Growth features new work by Graphic Design and Illustration students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, one of a series of events celebrating the centenary of D’Arcy Thompson’s landmark book On Growth and Form. 
 
Over the past few weeks, the students have created an amazing variety of sketches, objects, illustrations, collages and magazine layouts inspired by D’Arcy’s ideas and collections, the best of which will be shown in the exhibition.
 
Open now and running until into the New Year – details below :

Getting things done – Logie Avenue #dundeewestend

Residents recently brought to my attention two big potholes on the southern carriageway of Logie Avenue, near its junction with Glenagnes Road.
 
I brought this to the attention of the council’s Roads Maintenance Partnership and have now been updated as follows :
 
“An order has been raised for the repair of this pothole on Logie Avenue with a timescale for completion of approximately one week.”

University of Dundee Culture Day – today!

The Thirteenth Annual University of Dundee Culture Day :
 
GROWTH
 
Today – Wednesday 8th November 2017, 1.30pm-5pm
Lecture Theatre 1, Dalhousie Building, University of Dundee
 
This year the University’s annual Culture Day takes Growth as its theme, reflecting several important anniversaries – the centenary of D’Arcy Thompson’s On Growth and Form; the 350th anniversary of Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver’s Travels (in which size really matters); and the University’s own growth as we celebrate our 50th anniversary as an independent institution.
