Filtering Through

Mixed media installation, plastic, fabric, wood, modelling clay and resin.

Variable dimensions (maximum height 160 cm), 2015

Filtering Through is an installation, which was created for the exhibition Health Records, in response to the experience of delivering workshops at the bedside of patients on the Renal Unit at the Manchester Royal Infirmary. It uses analogy together with variations in scale to explore the medical processes of dialysis and the impact on the day-to-day life of the individual receiving treatment.

Following conversations that emerged during workshops with patients, a series of 'rooms' were produced that reflected favourite aspects of their own home.

Filtering Through was commissioned by CFCCA, Manchester for the exhibition Health Records, alongside work by Nicola Colclough. The project was supported by Kidneys for Life.
