After a long application process I finally got the news that the AHRC has given me an Early Career Research Grant to develop my research further. Now I can seriously start exploring the issue surrounding Multi Sensory Environments (MSE) in dementia care.
The project will start on 1st March 2013 and run for 1.5 years.

Out of Control

First presentation of new research project at the Design + Emotion Conference 2012 'Out of Control' in London: short paper titled Improving the emotional wellbeing of people with dementia.

The research examines strategies of providing specific sensory experiences for people living with dementia – focusing on Multi Sensory Environments (MSEs), their design, and current and future demanding role within homes caring for residents living with this condition.

From 8th March to 10th April 2012 Blurred Boundaries, an elusive multi media installation using projections onto layers of sheer textiles, is on show together with a selection of pictures called Light Patterns, which are generated through the merge of material and light, at flaxon ptootch in Kentish Town

The pictures and installation give an insight in my experimental work exploring the interaction of light, material and space, where the fusion of digital imagery and physical surface is a central theme. I am particularly interested in the visual ambiguities and the illusionary aspect created and how this influences our visual perception and the experience of space - blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual.

The installation can be seen from the outside of the gallery during the dark hours.
