Transplant is a large-scale photographic sound installation. Photographer Tim Wainwright and sound artist John Wynne have produced this thought-provoking and unique work after spending a year as artists-in-residence at Harefield Hospital, one of the world’s leading centres for heart and lung transplantation. Funded by Arts Council England and working with rb&hArts, they photographed and recorded patients, the devices they were attached to or had implanted in them, and the hospital itself.
Transplant is also a book, edited by Victoria Hume, comprising a collection of essays with a wide range of perspectives on the Transplant project and the wider issues it raises. It includes a 35-minute DVD by John Wynne and Tim Wainwright.
A related output is Hearts, Lungs and Minds, a half-hour composed documentary, commissioned for BBC Radio 3. More information is available at: http://www.sensitivebrigade.com and /Hearts,Lungs&Minds.htm http://ualresearchonline.arts.ac.uk/709/.
