Susan Aldworth @ Hatton Gallery

25 January 2020 - 9 May 2020

Illuminating the Self is an exhibition of new work by Susan Aldworth and Andrew Carnie in response to groundbreaking research led by Newcastle University into developing a new treatment for epilepsy.

The exhibition, which includes further work at Vane Gallery, explores different aspects of the University’s CANDO project (Controlling Abnormal Network Dynamics using Optogenetics). Optogenetics is a biological technique that involves the use of light to control cells in the brain that have been genetically modified to express light-sensitive ion channels.

Themes within the two exhibitions include the human perspective of living with epilepsy and the potential impact of technological interventions within the brain.
