Twenty-six things

Inspired by the kind of memory games used in psychology research, the artist Marion Coutts has created a film “Twenty-six things” featuring artifacts from the Wellcome Collection. You can watch the film for free at the Wellcome Collection in London until June 29.

Then on Thursday 19 June at the same venue, Coutts will be joined by, among others, the psychologist Hugo Spiers whose own research focuses on human memory, in a discussion of the film.

In recent years the Wellcome Trust has made a special effort to unite the arts and sciences in collaborative ventures, most obviously via its former SciArt funding scheme, which has now be broadened out to allow eligibility for any art form .
