SpaceBaby Online

SpaceBaby: guinea pigs don't dream from London Fieldworks on Vimeo.

London Fieldworks have recently put their film SpaceBaby: Guinea Pigs Don’t Dream online. Working with them as the writer on this project was a fascinating and stimulating experience – I’ve never been able to look at a hospital or university laboratory in quite the same way since. Scientists are absolute maniacs.

London Fieldwork’s copy for the SpaceBaby Vimeo post reads follows:

The performance/installation SpaceBaby was the first in a trilogy of works by London Fieldworks exploring the theme of hibernation and suspended animation. This video work incorporates SpaceBaby performance documentation and choreographed laboratory procedure with CG elements in collaboration with the composer Dugal McKinnon and writer Ken Hollings with narration by Roddy Maude-Roxby.

SpaceBaby was performed at SPACE SOON, an event organised and curated by The Arts Catalyst that took place at Camden Roundhouse in London, September 8-13, 2006.

The SpaceBaby video work was Funded by Arts & Business (New Partners Award), AHRC and Arts Council England and sponsored by Affymextrix, Ambion, with collaborative support from Department of Genetics at University of Leicester.
