The short film from our recent event Look Again…, in which we invited guests to investigate some of the overlooked aspects of medicine with their pen, lens, and hands, is now finished. I had a great time working with Deniz Inceer who shot and edited the piece, which winds through many spaces of the museum and through very different kinds of activities.

 

 

During the event, Mette Bersang challenged people to take photos of overlooked spaces – and to select only one of the photos they took, reminding us that editing is a fundamental part of photography. This kept coming back to me (perhaps as I’m currently trying to ‘edit’ down ideas for a new research project!), and I’d be intrigued to see how each participant would edit the memories of the night…

You can read more about what the participants got up to here, and about the process of creating a toolkit for this experimental event here. Look Again… accompanied the opening of Lucy Lyons‘ exhibition Experiences of Ageing, which is on now at Medical Museion.
