In memoriam Dudley Sutton:

MAPPING PERCEPTION from andrew kotting on Vimeo.

MAPPING PERCEPTION was a four year collaboration between Giles Lane, curator and producer (Proboscis), Andrew Kötting, the acclaimed director of Gallivant, This Filthy Earth and Ivul and Dr Mark Lythgoe, neurophysiologist at the Institute of Child Health, London.

MAPPING PERCEPTION examines the limits of human perception through an investigation of impaired brain function, making visible the connections between scientific and artistic explorations of the human condition, probing the thin membrane between the able and the disabled.

At the heart of the project is Eden, Andrew’s daughter. She was born at Guy’s Hospital, London, in 1988 with a rare genetic disorder – Joubert Syndrome – causing cereberal vermis hypoplasia and several other neurological complications. Eden thus participates in the project as both a catalyst and a cypher for a more general investigation into how we see the world and perceive difference.

MAPPING PERCEPTION had four main outcomes:

a 37 minute 35mm film
an immersive & environmental sensory installation
a book & CD-ROM
a website
