post UCLH Hospital

February 15th, 2008

Met with Guy Noble, the curator at UCLH hospital. We have been in touch over the last few years – Met a couple of years ago at of a series of workshops entitled Touch and the value of object handling – New technologies for enhancing object interpretation: interactives, haptics and interface technologies organised by Helen Chatterjee and Guy. last year he shortlisted me for a commission – in the foyer of the hospital there is a large video screen that they show work on. I mentioned the Chameleon Project – the first stage. Would suit the space, and the health/art area is interesting for the project. He agreed – booked in for May. Great to have something to work towards.

Discussed Haptics. He suggested I talk to Alan Wing / research team member, Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham – am interesting in creating a small touch based interactive peice to work out if we should make touch part of the final work. I think I met get Evan to start working on something, but also they may be a few people to work with at Banff.

Went to the Wellcome Trust gallery – It combines three contemporary galleries, a library and a public forum for science ideas. – Sleep exhibition on. Wellcome have funded Chameleon. Nice space. Great exhibition. Need to make an appointment with James Peto – the curator their about potentailly exhibiting the work.

‘I Can’t help the way I feel’ by John Isaacs, 2003 – an obese figure – more of an emotional portrait.

ancient mummy – wellcome collection, reminds me of Munch’s the scream.

Headed on to the Royal Academy to see the new Russion show. Heaps of Mattises, Kandinsky’s, – the exhibtion was packed – too busy to see the work – but was amazing to see the Mattises – The Dance. interesting – expressionism link to psychophysiological interactivity – both looked to the internal to create the work. Would like to research more about this,

We then headed over to Sketch, was closed for a function. Have been talking to the curator there, Victoria, about showing the project. Shes interested but so far have only tlaked over email. Fantastic space. Headed over to Iniva to see the cuban exhibition – great space and exhibition. Saw some really lovely work.
