Mapping Perception was a multi media arts project in collaboration with a Neurophysiologist, Mark Lythgoe and Curator Giles Lane. It took as its original inspiration my daughter Eden’s rare genetic condition; Joubert Syndrome. We spent almost four years working together and eventually produced a website, a gallery installation, a 35mm film and a book. We trawled back through a lot of my early archive of Eden as well as hours of Public Information films on the nature of disability. Presented in Café Gallery, Southwark Park, London in 2002 and touring as a single screen film to numerous Film Festivals thereafter.”Scientists and artists share an unquenchable curiosity and desire to question the world in which we live. Their methods, processes and outcomes may be worlds apart but their journeys can intertwine in united voyages of discovery. Mapping Perception is just such an experimental entanglement – the sum of four years of collaborative thinking, arguing, discussing, sharing and creating, borne of a shared passion, a common interest – perception.”Giles Lane, Producer, Proboscis
