This exhibition is an invitation to Memory Island, a unique virtual world where people could share the remarkable life stories and perceptions of space and time of a group of young adults with disabilities.
Trained physiotherapist and artist Jennie Pedley worked with the group to create their three-dimensional, computer based scenes which they developed together through drawings. She sited these within a utopian landscape influenced by the pre-Renaissance architecture and storytelling found in the paintings of Giotto.
From harrowing recollections of medical treatments to the liberating experience of wheelchair abseiling, Memory Island offered a chance to journey a world of personal narratives, perceptions of self and processes of representation.
A print and cd-rom publication, Memory Island, was produced to accompany the exhibition
