This open edition of A5 sized letterpress prints was originally made to accompany a piece of work shown as part of the 2018 Cambridge Pint Of Science/Creative Reactions talks and exhibition. I collaborated with eminent scientist, Dr Roger Barker who researches stem cell therapies for degenerative brain disorders including Parkinson’s and created a triptych of artist books. You can see more details about them on the artwork page of my website. The prints show a pattern representing the substantia nigra, the part of the brain containing dopaminergic nerve cells affected by Parkinson’s Disease, and a quote by famous sufferer Michael J Fox:

“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalised and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.”
