This significant public engagement project paired 7 artists and makers with scientists at the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging and the Max Planck Centre for Computational Psychiatry at UCL.

Elisa van der Plas and Andrew McWilliams worked with artists Tom Berry and Nicole Morris to produce artworks exploring research around decision-making, mental capacity, vulnerability and autonomy. The project culminated in an exhibition at Stourspace and a series of public engagement events with the local community in Hackney.
