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 […]

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.

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 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 […]
