Vaccination Nationalism, Science Gallery Detroit2021
Still from prototype GIF sequence, one of a series of 20 interactive scenarios posing questions around consent to public health surveillance, placing the participant in a clear position to make choices relating to what kinds of personal information to share or to keep private. Participants will input their responses via a smartphone App. If consent is given, these responses will form part of an evolving heat map projected onto the gallery wall.
Collaboration with Dr Laszlo Horvath, Research Fellow at Exeter Q-Step Centre, University of Exeter.
The interactive work has been selected by the Science Gallery Detroit to develop further as an App for their upcoming exhibition "Tracked and Traced" in September 2021 .
Inspired by images of 80-year-old Josephine Faleye, who had the first of two Pfizer jabs focused at the outset on the first white Caucasian vaccinees.
