This is a new body of new work that incorporates felt and discarded medical equipment.

It explores folklore and function through 13 works that externalised how science, art & design come together to enable us to live full life with conditions that used to be a life sentence.

It looks into legends of why we saw health issues as mystic powers and how contemporary science strives to demystify the legends behind the fear of knowledge.

This work was inspired by the idea of wool hides used to cure wounds in the olden days.

There are neurones that talk using sensors and speakers, pancreas which wiggles with insulin pump infusion sets and the brain that stubs pain with epilepsy measuring tools.
