Susan Aldworth and Andrew Carnie investigate the human perspective of living with epilepsy and the potential impact of technological interventions within the brain. Both artists use a range of techniques from traditional printmaking to large-scale video and sculptural installations. Susan Aldworth lives and works in London. She has a background in philosophy, and investigating the workings of the human mind, especially consciousness and our sense of self. Working as an artist-in-residence in a medical or academic setting is central to Aldworth’s practice – she has collaborated with scientists, clinicians and philosophers to investigate the many narratives of sleep, epilepsy, schizophrenia, and consciousness in her explorations into what it means to be human. Andrew Carnie is an academic at Winchester School of Art, Southampton University. His practice often involves meaningful interactions with scientists. He is a member of the Critical Practices Research Group at WSA where his own interests lie in exploring the self, through notions of hybridity, in organ transplantation, immunology, neurology, the brain, and how we get a sense of ourselves through science and images. The exhibition has been made in collaboration with the Newcastle University-led CANDO project which is developing a new light based therapy for focal epilepsy.
