WHITE MATTER 2015 

 'White Matter' opens as part of 'Group Therapy'

5th March -17th May 2015 AT Liverpool FACT 

From the artist's website: 'White Matter' is a new installation with moving image and glass sculptures, drawing on my research into internet addiction and developed in conversation with Dr. Henrietta Bowden-Jones, a clinical psychiatrist and leading expert in online addictions.

'Group Therapy - mental distress in a digital age' is curated by Vanessa Bartlett and Mike Stubbs.

Working with Katriona on this artistic project was great fun, she visited my office and was keen to learn everything she could about my experiences in treating patients with Internet Addiction Disorder. We recorded the conversations and she produced the most magnificent film and glass sculptures reminiscent of primordial modern tablets. 
The experience was such a good one we are now planning another art and science collaboration.
