Emotions, Transformations, Restorations

Publication date:

 The first in a series of workshops devoted to exploring the emotions and mateiral culture took place on Monday April 28 at UCL’s Institute of Making. The event, organized by Simon Werrett (UCL), Anna Maerker (King’s College London) and Leonie Hannan (UCL) brought together a dozen participants from around the UK to explore the emotions evoked by medical and surgical experiences. Roger Kneebone (Imperial College London) and the artist and sculptor Matthew Lane Sanderson presented to the group, and everyone participated in activities ranging from simulated surgery to copper wire sculpting. Participants will blog on their experiences at the ETR website, which also includes photos and video of the event.
