Newcastle University

Newcastle's famous bridges have a special significance for Sally Jane Norman, the new director of Newcastle University's Culture Lab. "I love them - they symbolise Newcastle's capacity to build linkages," she said.

The lab is a £4 million digital media facility for multidisciplinary research spanning science and the arts. "It is exactly the structure I have been dreaming about for some time," she said.

Her move to Newcastle follows five years as director of the Ecole Supérieure De L'image, in Angoulême and Poitiers, in France.
