Presence of mind

Just spotted this write-up on the Axis website about the work of Susan Aldworth, an artist whose work I’ve always found fascinating.

In 1999, Susan collapsed while in her studio. She was taken to the Royal London Hospital where, fully conscious whilst the doctors searched for a diagnosis, she ‘was looking into my brain, in real time, live, on a monitor, while lying on an operating table’. Since then her work has focused on the brain and exploring the nature of human consciousness.
