2017 (Perspex sheets and glass paint)
Building the Emotional Body was created as part of a seven-month-long residency at THECUBE in East London. THECUBE is a co-working and exhibition space dedicated to design, science and technology, and hosts a research lab focused on the study and understanding of how human perception works.
Seven artists explored unique aspects of embodiment and emotion relevant to our ongoing practices, including topics such as gravity, sensory perception, objects and memory, and emotional identity. Through the em-em residency, we each aimed to bring new perspectives to current dialogues around mind and body, building bridges between disciplines. The work and interests were shared through an exhibition and a series of talks open to the public.
Building the Emotional Body has also been shown as part of the Cryptic 2017 exhibition and for the MA Art and Science 2017 open studio.
