We sat on a mat and had a chat and made maps! #MagicCarpet

Part of Unlimited

Let your mind wander at We Sat on a Mat and Had a Chat and Made Maps! #MagicCarpet, a practice-led research project weaving science and art together.

Sit on a tapestry art installation and chat with one of the creators of the work while you co-create a map of your mind’s wanderings.

#MagicCarpet is an ongoing work by artist Dr Kai Syng Tan in collaboration with Philip Asherson, Professor of Molecular Psychiatry at King’s College London. The project draws on emerging research on the universality of mind wandering as well as how it relates to visual art and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Commissioned and supported by the Unlimited programme, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Arts Council England.
