(Don’t) Mention Dementia

In 2013 the artist worked in collaboration with Bournemouth University Dementia Institute.  Using Diary Rooms the artist and project team engaged with people with dementia to ask the question: what is it like to live with dementia?  The general public were then asked: what is dementia?  The responses to these two questions were then shown together in a number of exhibitions in the UK and Europe to challenge and change perceptions about dementia.
