These installations reshape laboratory glassware and equipment  to explore the structures and coded colourisation of cell cultures which the artist has observed in the lab as her skin cells are grown ‘in a dish’.

Charlie and electronics engineer Robin Bussell have choreographed robotic lasers and fluorescent lights to animate and illuminate neuronal activities.

Their new large scale spontaneous synapse installation  is currently being exhibitedat  The Lowry, Salford,  as part of international group exhibition  The State of Us
