Nappy Printing Healthcare Cutting

Nappy Printing Healthcare Cutting(2017)
Workshop in collaboration with Loes Bogers
Flyer, Loes Bogers

Exploring the potential of tactile and ‘imprecise’ visualisation techniques, this workshop introduces artistic with tools that allow us to look ‘underneath’ the data of healthcare, rather than at it, to tease out and discuss the social and political values of new healthcare governance.

Healthcare reform policies such as “Leading Change – Adding Value” (May 2016) show how healthcare is being remodelled according to measurable metrics, which rely on data produced by expecting mothers, new born babies and working midwives, while midwives and healthcare staff are asked to demonstrate their own value through data collection. But who harvests the value of these datasets, and with what benefits are healthcare being churned to numbers?

Public and free workshop, 5ht May 2017, Common House, London (UK).
