TEED

Very quick turn around on this one. A 48 hour collaboration with Fashion Designer Keko Hainwheeler and Gerard Rallo . Lead singer of TEED Orlando Higginbottom, wanted to push the headdress for their latest performance on stage at Bestival last weekend. Together Keko and I created a headdress that lit up and changed color with whilst pulsing to the music.

Diabetes Public EngagementSelf-initiated worksArtist– James Gilpin Large amounts of sugar are excreted on a daily basis by type-two diabetic patients especially amongst the upper end of our aging population. As a result of this diabetic patients toilets often have unusual scale build up in the basin due and rapid mould growths as the sugar put into the system […]

Walls

Walls is a hyperlocal social tool to help people re-engage with their surroundings. This project was started by Gerard Rallo while researching the future of culture and social engagement with Wieden + Kennedy. I joined the team as Co-founder working with Gerard to iterate the service and communicate its worth to potential users and investors. www.walls.im We […]

Mind Control

In Marcel Proust’s “Search of Lost Time” we are all lead through his insight into the process of memory via his recollection of the Madeline cake soaked in tea. This became the starting point for my investigation into digital versus actual memory. The ubiquitous nature of the digital camera and the ease of publishing and sharing […]

Interim show

Three physical models accompanied by one short film? The two key areas that I would like to talk about. 1.) The convergence, Digital technologies being developed along side biological medicines. In particular there use to enhance the bodies abilities; endurance, speed, strength and intelligence. 2.) Engagement and awareness, using design I would like to create a space for the public discussion of diabetes and the policy which […]

Language for exhibition.

Convergence and the singularity, Can I break down the project into biomedicine and advanced information technology including cognitive neuroscience? In doing so I want to highlight the convergence of these technologies rather than talk about one of the emerging technologies in the singular.

Convergence and the Singularity

The concept of ‘converging technologies’ stems from a 2002 report sponsored by the US National Science Foundation (NSF), and edited by Mihail Roco and William Bainbridge: In the early decades of the twenty-first century, concentrated efforts can unify science based on the unity of nature, thereby advancing the combination of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, and new technologies based in cognitive science.

Sir Steve Redgrave on diabetes

“Every waking moment you’re aware that you’re diabetic,” he says. “But you develop a new sense – what you’re going to eat, how much insulin you’ve got to take with that food that you’re taking, what sort of a stressful day you’re going to be living because that affects the blood sugar levels as well…so […]

The Heretic Foundation

Julian Schwinger a Noble Prize winner (1965) established a research foundation towards the end of his life to take in member of the research community rejected by main stream academia. he provided a money and a safe haven for those with theories that went against the main stream.

RFID BioSensor

Diabetes takes an enormous toll both on the individual and society. However, accurate monitoring of blood glucose levels when combined with insulin therapy dramatically improves upon lifestyle and lifespan. Unfortunately, the current gold standard method for blood glucose measurement requires an invasive test. The purpose of this project is to develop an implantable, externally readable glucose sensor. VERICHIP

Abuse of Diabetic Drug

The users are not fad dieters or methamphetamine addicts, but people with diabetes. And the subject of their rhapsodies is not a gray-market diet pill sold on late-night television but Byetta, a federally approved diabetes medicine, available only by prescription, whose popularity and sales have soared since its introduction last June. The drug seems so effective for weight […]

Insulin analogues are the most recent biotechnology products used in the treatment of diabetes and are designed to have absorption profiles that more nearly mimic the action of normal insulin production by the body than synthetic ‘human’ insulin. However, analogues differ in their biological effects with unknown consequences, such as their effects on:

• Mitogenicity [promotion of division and proliferation of any cell, including tumour cells]
• Apoptosis [see glossary].
• Glucose and lipid metabolism.
• Thrombocyte function.
• Protein degradation.

Policy Blunder

Guidelines for policy concerning the development and legal protection of biological enhanced organisms are largely based upon the research carried out by organisations that stand to benefit from the spread and commercialisation of the technology. Is there another alternative?

THE NEED FOR HERETICS

The world always needs heretics to challenge the prevailing orthodoxies. We are lucky that we can be heretics today without any danger of being burned at the stake. But unfortunately i am an old heretic. Old heretics do not cut much ice. When you hear an old heretic talking, you can always say, “too bad he […]
