With the suppprt of NHS Lothian's Art & Therapeutic Design programme, the Alt-w LAB is hosting four mentoring residencies this winter. Edinburgh-based design specialist Stacey Hunter is a producer, curator and writer.

Exploring how healthcare environments have implications for patients in terms of their identity and sense of self, Stacey will be thinking about how the depersonalising effect of clinical environments might be positively counteracted.

Starting with the idea of the ‘dressing table’, the residency will consider the accoutrements we surround ourselves with to communicate or sustain our 'best self', using the City of Edinburgh's art collection as a resource and reference point.

Edinburgh Art Festival | Molecules of Decay

Human Skin

Sunday 27th August 2017, 2-4pm. RSVP
Alt-w LAB, City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh

This workshop explores ways in which smells encode memories. When a molecule light enough to evaporate reaches the nose, it sometimes results in the detection we call smell. Joy Milne's extraordinary sense of smell could possibly change the way Parkinson’s Disease is diagnosed, as she is able to detect the disease in body odour.

From human sweat to plant pheromones, the same molecule can be found in the composition of many everyday smells. As we establish associations to these, experiences from the medical setting might extend beyond the walls of the hospital into people’s homes and vice versa, calling for other articulations in matters of care.
