  • Invited by the Public Engagement team at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute to help design the 'ethics' component of the Sanger stand at the Royal Society Festival of Science, July 2013. We utilised a multi-media approach - consisting of film with actors asking a series of ethics questions delivered on a large TV screen, a second screen delivering a question that visitors could press buttons to answer and a use of several projectors that beamed down genetic 'traits' as words onto visitor's clothes. Exhibition was designed to run concurrently with a similar exhibition at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.
