Brighton Digital Festival

On 12 September 2012, Sarah Harvey, Tim Yates and Richard Whale held a reflective talk at the Nightingale Theatre, Brighton. They spoke about the ideas that inspired the work, the conceptual and ethical issues that were raised during the research, as well as the progress and outcome of their research linking artistic practice to scientific research and the confluence of both The Sciences and The Arts. The audience also experienced the heart sounds created during this project. 

"The talk was incredibly interesting when the lights went down, and I experienced the intimate sound of the heart, it made me cry, there was an incredible vulnerability and intimacy to the evening." (Audience participant)
