Andrew Kötting is an artist and filmmaker, the director of the numerous shorts and the acclaimed first feature Gallivant (1996). His second feature, This Filthy Earth, was premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in August 2001 and was released in the UK on November 2nd 2001 at the Curzon Soho cinema, London. The film won the Best Use of Digital FX prize at Hamburg International Film Festival.

Eden Kötting was the star of Gallivant and the inspiration for MAPPING PERCEPTION. Eden suffers from a rare neurological condition known as Joubert's Syndrome in which a small part of the lower portion of the brain (the cerebellum) is underdeveloped. This causes Eden to have a variety of symptoms including trouble with her speech, motor co-ordination, eye movements and breathing.

Giles commissioned both Andrew and Mark to create projects for COIL
journal of the moving image and later brought them together to work
on MAPPING PERCEPTION. In addition to his work
for Proboscis, Giles is Visiting
Research Associate to MEDIA@LSE at the London
School of Economics
and was a Research Fellow at the Royal
between 1998 and 2002.
Mark Lythgoe, is a Neurophysiologist based at the Institute
of Child Health
Ormond Street Hospital
where he uses Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques for investigating
brain function and developing possible therapies for children suffering from
stroke. Interested in the public understanding of science, Mark has contributed
to the new Birmingham Discovery Centre with Brain
Tuner, an interactive installation in which one can investigate the
brain areas that control our senses.
Over the past 8 years, Mark has collaborated with a wide variety of artists – one of his first projects, working with Helen Sear in 1995, investigated the place of medical imagery in art and culminated as a publication in COIL journal of the moving image. In 1999 the joint exhibition Chimera with visual artist Jayne Gouge utilised the technology of MRI to create an unusual bridge between what we see and the way we see it. More recently Mark has worked with Annie Cattrell, producing sculptures of our thoughts from functional MRI brain scans, which were exhibited in Spring 2001 at the Anne Faggionato Gallery London. In 2002 Mark was awarded the prestigious Dorothy Hodgkin Award Lecture by the BA (British Association for the Advancement of Science).
