Catch Your Breath in the UK

An image from the Catch Your Breath project is being shown alongside ancient aboriginal rock art, The Scream and The Birth of Venus as part of an exhibition touring the UK. The exhibition explores how the breath has been understood and experienced over time by  philosophers, scientists and artists and has been developed by the Life of Breath group based at Durham and Bristol universities as a five year project funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Coincidentally, the exhibition is called Catch Your Breath, which explains why I couldn’t secure catchyourbreath.org for my own project website 🙂

The image being used – breath 5307 of the archive contributed by someone in Brisbane at 2:43 pm on the 20th of August 2017

After 5 months in Durham, the tour is now at the Royal College of Physicians in London until September 20, 2019 and then the Southmead Hospital Bristol until late 2019. Further information can be found here.

STARTS prize !

Excited to announce that the Off Grid project has been awarded a 2018 European Commission STARTS prize in the ‘Nomination’ category.  The award recognises “innovative projects at the interface of science, technology and art”.  Off Grid was completed in 2016. Thirty projects were recognised by the award; the grand prize went to the world’s first 3D printed steel bridge by a team in the Netherlands.
