Making the Invisible Visible

Foyer Exhibition

“Making the Invisible Visible” explores the language, form and narrative of congenital heart disease. The installation with 3D-printed models of congenital heart disease is accompanied by a soundscape, in which the voice of a mother narrating the experience of her child’s heart transplant is intertwined with medical language and MRI sounds. The MRI is an integral part of the care of these patients, as well as the source of the imaging data from which the 3D models are made. The piece was created by Sofie Layton during her residency at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, with Dr Giovanni Biglino (Bristol Heart Institute) and sound artist Jules Maxwell.
